Clerodendrum trichotomum var. fargesii

The above observation should link to mine. But I can't see it has. Perhaps it's because you have added "autumn fruits" to the bi-nomial.
Anyway click on the link below to see mine!

Think I may add a new id and see if it links!

Clerodendrum

I wouldn't bother but I don't understand why they haven't linked.
I do wonder if it's because you put "autumn fruits" in the bi-nomial which is not part of the name-who knows?I'm not a computer expert!

Yes ...

... that is why it's not linking - it is likely looking for an exact match to the botanical name in the "probable identification". If you remove your agreement to Rachy's ID that should tip the balance to make your ID the "probable identification", and cause the system to make the desired link.

Looks like there is another obstacle

Possibly because one was spelt "var." and the other "var".

The other possible problem is that the varietal name isn't in the iSpot database, and it might not look for matches for names outside its database.

I think I know...

...what I did wrong - I started by typing the name into the dbase box, but nothing came up. So I cut and pasted the name - including the autumn fruits bit - from your entry, David.

So the system was working, in the sense that it just did not present the suggestion.

I have no idea why... I had assumed that your entry would have created a dbase entry. Perhaps there was a minor glitch at the time I did it? Perhaps I cut and pasted a slightly different version, maybe with extra spaces, or a letter cropped off? Who knows.

Either way, yours is now the "leading" ID, so all is well.

Sorry!
