  1. Ferdy, for some reason "Monarda clinopodia" is linking to "Monarda clinopodioides" in the species records. Can you amend this? They are two separate species. Posted 14 days ago
    1. Done, only created a bare minimum species record for Monarda clinopodia, feel free to enrich if you have good info. Posted 14 days ago
      1. Thank you for going out of your way to do this! I was talking to one of the local experts, and it turns out this may be a fairly newly described species rather than M. clinopodia. I'm trying to get more information on features, but I may know why the Monarda key for my area was stumping me! I'll update it if it turns out to be that one! Posted 14 days ago
        1. That's very exciting, please do keep us informed! Posted 14 days ago
          1. Confirmed as Monarda austroappalachiana! Posted 13 days ago
            1. Yaaaay! Congrats, Lisa! Posted 13 days ago
