Dear Mr Schmid
I did read with interest your treatise on species

I happened to be at a library today and found ( Ich habe mich daran gefunden) myself at the Reference section while I waited for a computer. Picked up the H volume of Encyclopaedia Americana, published in 2000. Turned to "Hosta." It read : A genus of 10 species.
Why does this happen? Many respected encyclopaedias make this mistake--OR is it a mistake? Could a competent botantist/taxonomist validly claim that there are but 10 species in the genus?
