Lesser Celandine Name

I emailed the ispot website and they say that the latin name to use is the one on the Natural History Museum and Biodiversity Website and to use Get Recommended whenever possible. BOTH these give Ranunculus ficaria.

Lesser Celandine Name

BSBI lists this as a name change that came in with Stace 3. They use both names on their web site depending, I would guess, on the age of the web page or document.

I presume that the Natural History Museum and the NBN web site will eventually fall in line.
