Vernacular names - Welsh

Hi Tom,

Where did you get the vernacular names used in the taxon dictionary? I haven't checked many, but was just looking at Hammarbya and noticed the Welsh name doesn't seem to be what I thought it was (tegeirian bach y gors). I'm not sure if there is a different list/ database you have got things from, but I believe the standard for Welsh names now is Planhigion Blodeuol, Conwyd a Rhedyn (2003) from Cymdeithas Edward Llwyd - I've got a spreadsheet which is meant to be the same if you want a copy any time. Having said that I haven't checked so it could be a singular fault with Hammarbya rather than a systemic problem with out-of-date ones.
