Many of you may use Wikipedia.

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

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


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!
