I tried to enter all the synonyms of it, but the system sends me to Galium brevifolium, while ITIS gives Galium Mollugo as the accepted name..
So G. brevifolium must be a synonym as the system sends me to that one? Confused

Galium brevifolium is not recognized by ITIS, there is two entry for it in the database;
Galium brevifolium subsp. brevifolium and
Galium brevifolium

I found the other synonyms on Wikipedia who take Galium album as the accepted name..

I have quite a bit of experience with that myself, Myriam. The synonym entries have to be deleted from the database before you can add them to the correct accepted entry.
I garden for the pollinators.

Plants Admin

For Galium I'd use the Catalog of Life (referencing Kew WCSP), then ITIS.

http://www.catalogueoflife.org...
http://apps.kew.org/wcsp/qsear...
http://www.itis.gov/servlet/Si...

I can run through this in the near future.
