      Description

      Another case where two names with same specific epithet and author are treated as synonyms when they aren't.

      The African species Gilbertiodendron straussianum (Harms) J.Léonard http://www.ipni.org/ipni/idPlantNameSearch.do?id=496556-1 has the basionym Macrolobium straussianum Harms http://www.ipni.org/ipni/idPlantNameSearch.do?id=505785-1

      Bauhinia straussiana Harms is a South American species http://www.ipni.org/ipni/idPlantNameSearch.do?id=481698-1

      GBIF links these three names, so that the African genus Gilbertiodendron appears in Africa.

      Another example where having IPNI basionym links would prevent this problem.

          The upcoming August 2016 backbone has this fixed:

          • 2941652 Gilbertiodendron straussianum (Harms)J.Leonard is ACCEPTED within Gilbertiodendron J. Leonard (Fabaceae); basionym unknown
          • 2953365 Bauhinia straussiana Harms is SYNONYM of Bauhinia conwayi Rusby; basionym unknown
          • 2941653 Macrolobium straussianum Harms is a SYNONYM of Gilbertiodendron straussianum (Harms)J.Leonard

          The missing basionym relation could be derived by just looking at explicitly given synonyms: POR-3160
