The hybridizer spelled it incorrectly when he registered it. The registrar at that time did not catch this error and it was printed in the hard copy of registrations for that year. Thus, we are stuck with it. There is no recourse. That's not the only one! I recall one particular registration when I was AHS President when the hybridizer insisted on spelling a word incorrectly. The registrar tried his best to talk him out of it, but the hybridizer insisted. Won't mention the name as many would recognize it.

The must have fixed it at the AHS site, as it has 2 r's there. That's what motivated me to make this post.

LOL, didn't even check the link because I knew the last time I looked it was still with the one R, that must have been a recent edit then, I'll go fix it! Thanks Brad!

I'm honestly shocked that this was changed since it had appeared in hard copy with the other spelling. Somehow I doubt that ISHS has changed that hard rule about names being set in pepertuity once they had appeared in hard copy.
