It's not so simple as you suggest. What do you do with synonyms,
varieties, ssp., etc.
For example, how should I enter this into your comma delimited list?
Arisaema latisectum Blume = A. serratum v. serratum or A. tashiroi Blume
Arisaema aequinoctiale Nakai & F. Maek. = A. undulatifolium Nakai
A complete list is available for Arisaema and Pinellia, but not in comma
I started to insert the commas, but ran into the problems illustrated
above. When it
became obvious there were too many "exceptions", I quit.
A more managable list could be made by omitting all v., f. and ssp. plus
Doesn't your palm pilot have a "find" function? If it does, you don't
need a database
format. The available list will do.
