There is an agave here which I'm pretty sure is mislabeled in the database.

Agave virginica "Spot"
Century Plant (Agave 'Spot')

According to the nursery it came from, the plant is actually a hybrid of A. virginica x A. maculosa, not a species.

I would like to change the name in the database to reflect the genetics but I'm not sure how to do it. Would it be as simple as changing the name to Agave "Spot" with the actual cross specified in the "Parentage" box at the bottom of the edit screen? I would appreciate any feedback. Thank You!

Since it's a hybrid, that sure sounds like the correct way of listing it to me.

Yep, that would be the right way to do it.
