Infraspecific taxa

A local recorder has just found Saponaria officinalis 'Flore Pleno', an infraspecific taxon not listed in MapMate. I will enter the record as the species, and once on the DDb will edit the taxon. That prompted me to check for other records of this taxon. See: ... 35a00edaee.

Would it be appropriate to bulk edit the records for Saponaria officinalis (where the Comments field specifically states that the record refers to the 'Flore Pleno' entity)? I suspect the Comments field is quite regularly used to refer to a taxon name not available in MapMate.

(Searching for records with specific text in the Comments field can be done using a wild card in the format %Flore Pleno% - see the query linked to above).
