I greatly appreciate when someone gives a reason for an MO determination or vote. The chain of comments at Observation 76607 make for very interesting reading, particularly Beñat Jeannerot’s comment that the epithet scutellata is – based on DNA – 99% likely to be wrong.
Perhaps the MO S. scutellata group is an effort to capture his “scutellata complex”. But that doesn’t work now because in the current MO implementation, a group is a subtaxa of a species.
