Sell & Murrell's Flora names

Tom,

I suspect that adding Stace 4 names to the DDb will be the priority, but are there plans to add all the names in Sell & Murrell's Flora to the DDb's taxon dictionary? I appreciate this might be a huge task. I know a few VCRs use names from that work, adding them to the MM Comments field where not available in the MM dictionary. It would be good to capture those entries under their correct names.

Andy.

Many Sell & Murrel names are included, but there hasn't, so far been a comprehensive effort to add all names.

When importing data from tabular sources I always aim to use the original names assigned, adding them when required, but MapMate names in comments fields circumvent that route, so would often be overlooked. I'm very happy to add names that are in use but not available in the DDb.
