A better way to deal with misspellings than this. Deprecating “pucillum” legitimizes it just as much as approving it would. Shouldn’t the taxonomy at MO should be reserved for actual published taxa, not filled up with junk? In my experience, having all of these misspellings categorized alongside published synonyms does absolutely nothing to stem the flow of erroneous taxa being created.
