      Description

      We're using the GBIF backbone taxonomy to get the accepted name for invasive species in source datasets. Doing so, we discovered an issue with Pueraria lobata and Pueraria montana. Both species belong to the genus Pueraria (http://www.gbif.org/species/2977604), which has the expected subordinate species in GBIF, except for those two (and all their subspecies/variety combinations):

      These are all linked as synonyns to Anthyllis montana L. (http://www.gbif.org/species/5352354). But Pueraria and Anthyllis are not related, except that they are both Fabaceae. You can actually see in the pictures that their habitus is very different.

      • From what source datasets is this information coming from?
      • Is there a way to fix this using https://github.com/gbif/backbone-patch. If so, come help on how we can provide a patch would be useful.

          Source Information says:
          "This backbone name usage is included because it was found in another checklist at the time the backbone was built.
          View the primary source (http://www.gbif.org/species/112131769) usage in Catalogue of Life."
          But, if we check http://www.gbif.org/species/112131769 , it doesn't seem to link to Anthyllis montana L.

          The upcoming August 2016 backbone has this fixed:

          • Pueraria lobata (Willd.)Ohwi is a SYNONYM of Pueraria montana var. lobata (Willd.)Sanjappa & Pradeep
          • Pueraria montana (Lour.)Merr. is ACCEPTED within Pueraria DC.

          Anthyllis montana L. is now a European species, apparently correct: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthyllis_montana

          Pueraria montana (Lour.) Merr. a mostly asian species, with another areal in East US:
