Re: SPU: New botanical Iris name

Won't work.  There is only one authority for the species.  Rather, somoeone jsut missused the name for his whole carreer, but was otherwise a great scientist.  And the real T. longatum wasn't in cultivation.
I think the origional problem was that this guy couldn't read Latin and guessed.  Wrong.  And published widely, and had many influencial students.
Or maybe he ddidn't have a copy of a taxonomic guide to the Triticums.  Some of the ag schools of a century ago didn't have great libraries.

it "'Wheat ishgabbible Whosii" or whatever it was? Not the done thing in wheat?
