That's the reason why the idea of "reciprocating" via Wikipedia is always
wrong.

Many of you may use Wikipedia.

Here is a plant name (*Viola Wikipedia*), which may be first name to honor
Wikipedia.


Viola wikipedia J.M.Watson & A.R.Flores, Int. Rock Gard. 117: 47. 2019



Hello,

According to the international plant names index [0], the name is 
illegitimate [1] and the plant actual name is "Viola angustifolia".  We 
should probably have the created articles to be renamed toward the 
legitimate name instead :]


It is still a great token of appreciation, and I am quite happy to see 
Wikipedia being of good use for plant research!

Hello,

I am not able to access referenced PDFs right now, assuming it's
authoritative enough. I hope it's not a prank, specially considering its
name...
