I've looked at this and wrote them as well.

They list 

Chaenomeles and Pseudocydonia as the same plant.

Crazy thing.

One is a thirty foot tree and the other is a three to four foot shrub.

Fruit very different as are the flowers.

Subject: [pbs] online plant references

I've been trying to add who has named the plants to the wiki when I 
update a page. We have tended to use The Plant List as a resource. I 
recently thought one of the references of a South African irid  I found 
there couldn't be correct  so wrote John Manning for an opinion. When he 
sent me the correct information I sent it on to the Plant List and heard 
back that they are no longer updating that site. I was told that "All 
the updated data can soon be found on Plants of the World Online (POWO)"

The url is:
