Taxonomic Swap 134127 (Committed on 08-11-2023)

There is no Plagiochila porelloides aggregate, this is misleading and suggests a species complex.

What was the complex composed of ? Because it would have been better to swap it into Plagiochilla porelloides (instead of Plagiochilla) to prevent data loss.

Someone had created the porelloides-aggregate without a taxonomic basis for it. There is no data loss. I moved the species asplenioides and porelloides back to genus-level and I included the porelloides complex to the genus Plagiochila because there are a lot of unclear determinations in the complex, that could be asplenioides or porelloides. If the aggregate no longer exists, the next higher level (of uncertainty) is the genus, not the species Plagiochila porelloides. Otherwise, some P. asplenioides observations might have been added to P. porelloides.

Well, ok that's why i asked for the species composing the complex ;-) (if Plagiochilla porelloides was alone inside)

No, it is no longer, it is back in the genus where it belongs. ;)
