on this. IF and MB are useful databases, without a doubt, but sometimes they are only useful when the data they receive has been accurately vetted. Their data is based on user input. Since you took the lead, it is up to your evaluation which is proper and useful here on MO.

Thanks Roy

Should we deprecate Harry chromipes in favor of Harrya chromapes or wait until Paul Kirk and Shaun Pennycook make the corrections to IF and MB respectively?

Origin of ‘chromapes’

The origin of the epithet, chromapes, is not from ‘chromus" + “pes”. Rather it is from the Greek “chroma”, 3rd declension, neuter noun, + “pes”. Check Stearn’s Botanical Latin, 4th edition, p. 80.
