Dear Jim,
	I disagree completely. Although I did present a typo (knew 
the spelling difference as seen in the book), a conscientious 
registrar should never accept a second name that will cause confusion 
of any sort.  Combine my bad typing, with any one's pronunciation of 
the two words and you have a real problem - one you first raised 
about the relationship between these two plants.

	The ICNCP* would not approve.

	There isn't much we can do about except complain and point 
out the difference.

		Best		Jim W.
