Bramble taxonomy

Can someone knowledgeable in botany say what we should do for the scientific name for Bramble.

Here we have Rubus (just a genus) elesewhere on iSpot Rubus fructicose agg. Which is correct?

Rubus fruticosus agg. is generally used as a name the brambles, though in Stace 3, it is not quite all-inclusive. Just "Rubus" could include raspberry and many others, so is best avoided. Bramble or Blackberry is best in English.
