Thoughts on this @robberfly, @greglasley, @nblock, @kueda? iNat is supposed to be following as a taxonomic authority.

@nlblock rather than the nblock you have above. If iNat follows Pelham, then I guess we follow Pelham. I don't know what the best aurthority is to follow.

It sounds good to me! I held off on some of these changes a while back because a European user didn't necessarily agree with making changes to Holarctic genera based on a North American taxonomic authority. Their argument was that the European usage was much more established. I think it's better to stick to one authority (Pelham), but I didn't want to argue at the time.
