Description: He encontrado que especies con nombres aceptados están como sinónimos de otras especies. Por ejemplo, dentro de Halenia weddeliana esta Halenia hoppii; dentro de Gentianella selaginifolia igual encontre a G. dasyantha.

I have found that species with accepted names are synonymous with other species. For example, within Halenia weddeliana this Halenia hoppii; Within Gentianella selaginifolia even found G. dasyantha.

Best regards

Comment: These synonyms come from Catalogue of Life, and as is typical there is no reason given. CoL gives "WorldPlants" as its source but the link takes you to a page where that database can't be found. How is it that we've allowed our taxonomy to be decided like this?!
