      Description

      For reason's that I can't fathom, GIF has Lessingianthus rosmarinifolius (Less.) H.Rob. and Santolina rosmarinifolia L. as synonyms. This results in a strange map for the South American species Lessingianthus rosmarinifolius http://www.gbif.org/species/3117819 which puts most of this species' records in Spain:

      Lessingianthus rosmarinifolius has as it's basionym Vernonia rosmarinifolia Less. http://www.ipni.org/ipni/idPlantNameSearch.do?id=264470-2 whereas Santolina rosmarinifolia L. is the original name.

      I can't work out from GBIF which checklist source states that these two names are synonyms.

          Adding images to JIRA is a huge pain

          I need to verify this, but my first impression is that this is due to a bad basionym detection in the nub build. The names have the issue "basionym derived" which means the basionym relation was derived from the same epithet and author for names in the same family. I would think that the author L. and Less. were considered to be potentially the same and therefore the wrong basionym relation was established.

          Then only one of those recombination names here is allowed to be accepted:

          The upcoming August 2016 backbone has this fixed:

          • 3117819 Lessingianthus rosmarinifolius (Less.) H.Rob. is DOUBTFUL accepted within Lessingianthus H. Rob.
          • 3125944 Santolina rosmarinifolia L. is DOUBTFUL accepted within Santolina L.
          • 5701210 Vernonia rosmarinifolia Less. is a SYNONYM of Lessingianthus rosmarinifolius (Less.) H.Rob. | 3117819 |

          Wrongly Vernonia rosmarinifolia has Lessingianthus rosmarinifolius (Less.) H.Rob. as its basionym which is the wrong way around. Handled in new issue POR-3159
