Description: Please disable fuzzy matches for Selaginella spinosa. All your database links end up at Selaginella speciosa, which is a completely(!) different thing.
Take a look at this:
And then follow the link to the herbarium:

Because S.spinosa is a synonym, all the S.spinosa entries end up S.selaginoides. That is very wrong.

Your page is leaving the impression this has been identified by I. A. Valdespino. If somebofy pays no attention to the very small and misunderstandable "fuzzy match" at the top of the page one would believe Valdespino would have identified S.speciosa as S.spinosa. A very funny thought. He is the master of Selaginella.]]>

The new nub contains Selaginella speciosa so there wont be any fuzzy match anymore:

Thank you very much.
How long will the database need to update itself?
Everything in South America is a fuzzy mismatch of S.spinosa.

Comment: I am afraid it will take some time before this change gets live, but it is planned for April still
