Re: SPU: New botanical Iris name

I had written:

<< Shouldn't including the authority in the name take care of that? I mean 
 it "'Wheat ishgabbible Whosii" or whatever it was? >>

And what I asked is not the way it would work anyway. 

What I was suggesting was that if you had two or more wheats circulating with 
the same name as put forth at different times, one name of which would not be 
legit although it might be in use, then including the authorities might 
distinguish the plants. 

The name of the authority would follow the binomial and while it might be 
abbreviated it would not be in an adjectival form like a specific epithet. 

I need not to try to ask questions when I am cold befuddled. Thanks for 
understanding what I was groping for.

Interesting story, incidentally.
