Okay, Dave, first there are a few images to be moved. The two under Symphyandra hofmanii (misspelled in our database as hoffmannii) should be moved to Campanula hofmannii. The image under S. zanzegur should be moved to Campanula zangezura. S. armena, S. cretica, S. hofmannii, S. pendula, S. wanneri, and S. zangezura should be added as synonyms to the corresponding Campanula species entries, and Symphyandra zanzegur should be added as an 'also sold as" to the C. Zangezura entry.

And then the whole Symphyandra genus page should be deleted because it isn't a genus anymore.

Hmm, there are only 7 plants listed there. With such a small number of plants, it would actually be faster to just do them one by one.

I can do it but I would need to parse your instructions above or you could do it probably fastest of all. Sorry - I didn't realize before that there were so few plants being affected.

I almost told you that it would take me longer to write the instructions than to do it. Hilarious!

Okay, I did the first series of miscellaneous proposals, and after they're approved I can delete everything in the Symphyandra genus.

But I'm not clear on where the Annie's Annual name (S. Zanzegur) should be entered on the Campanula zangezura page.

I approved them all.

As for the Annie's Annuals error, I can't say right now.

Then I'll just keep it in mind for the future. Thanks, Dave.

If the number of plants affected is great than around 20 then it'll be faster for me to do it. Never hesitate to ask! I can do a lot on the programming side of things.

I just noticed some plant info in the S. armena entry, so I added it to the existing info for C. armena, but there's also a comment by jmorth. Can you move the comment from Symphyandra armena to Campanula armena, please?
