Ficaria verna subspecies not available

I was surprised not to be able to find Ficaria verna when using the irecord app, and when trying to enter a record on the website.

I then saw this page https://www.irecord.org.uk/help-species-names and worked out that it was being treated as a synonym of Ranunculus ficaria, with R. ficaria being preferred.

Also.. the species list doesn't seem to contain F. verna ssp. verna and F. verna ssp. fertilis .. but does contain F. verna agsp. bulbifer.. which I don't think is a legitimate name?

If I'm not mistaken, F. verna ssp. verna should be synonymous with R. ficaria ssp. bulbilifer and F. verna ssp. fertilis is synonymous with R. ficaria ssp. ficara

 

Is there no way to allow entering those "synonyms" when editing a record?

Is there also no way to allow input of synonymous names in the mobile app?

 

Cheers,

Johannes
