my entry yesterday of Cerastium vulgatum had been approved off, but now I found out it is a synonym of
Cerastium fontanum ssp. vulgare.
The plant has a big list of synonyms! Rolling my eyes.

Today i have edited the name of my entry according to this new info, and added all the synonyms in there, but then I found out that the correct entry Cerastium fontanum ssp. vulgare.already exists in the database.
Not sure now what to do? Rolling my eyes.

In that case you would delete the new plant since it's considered a duplicate of the other existing plant in the database.
