A general search for Dracontium results in members of that genus but not synonyms or species of that name. http://garden.org/plants/browse/plants/genus/Dracontium/

Here's an ex. of a syn. Symplocarpus foetidus. Skunk cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus)

Here's a species. Arisaema dracontium. Greendragon (Arisaema dracontium)

When you search for a genus by exact name, it will not perform the search but instead redirect you over to the list of plants that match that genus. Synonyms are not considered in that list.

But if you do a search for more than just a genus (say, a genus + species) then you should see the Symplocarpus foetidus in your search.

Maybe we should disable the feature that sends you to the "Browse by genus" page when you search for a genus.

I've disabled it. If nobody notices, we'll leave it disabled. If they do notice and complain, we'll think of another solution. Smiling

Right. The search engine is not ordered alphabetically. It is ordered by relevance. This is standard on all search sites.

You'll notice when you do a Google search, the results are not alphabetical there, either.

For alphabetical browsing, click on the genus name.
