@ plantladylin Lin,

You could do it yourself if you like (when you find an error and/or something that needs to be corrected or updated).

Just go to the plant, White Rabbit's Foot Fern (Davallia tyermannii) and click onto the Edit Plant Name (on the left side of the plant page) and then when that comes up, add the correct spelling in the space next to Latin Name and click (at the bottom of the page) where it states: Submit your proposed changes. Hope that helps. Thumbs up
Welcome to the Agastache and Salvias Forum!

Hummingbirds are beautiful flying jewels in the garden!

I just declined your name edit proposal, Marilyn, because you didn't change the spelling and I couldn't see what you were trying to edit.

Now that I've seen the thread, I'll correct the spelling.

*Blush* For some reason I thought that only database administration had the ability to change/correct a species name ... so I never even attempted to try.
