According to some authorities, Adenium obesum is the preferred name (they are synonyms). So I'm going to move your Adenium somalense observations to Adenium obesum. Other authorities consider Adenium somalense a sub species of Adenium obesum. Even in that case I have to move them over.

When you search for "Adenium somalense" on iNaturalist, it redirects you to this:
When you scroll to the bottom, you can explicitly see "Adenium somalense" striked through, which usually means it should not be used.
...considers it a synonym of Adenium obesum subsp. somalense.
...basically agrees with GBIF, preferring it as a sub species.
We normally don't create sub species record, but if you want, I can definitely do it to make the distinction, do let me know. Alternatively, we can keep it like it is now, and you are free to keep mentioning Adenium somalense in the title, description, tags. This way it remains findable. Posted one year ago
