    The most authoritative reference for correct spelling would be the source description. For example, for N. kerrii see

    Another great reference is the CP Database

    And, if you aren't familiar with plant descriptions that are in latin, or possibly some other language besides your native language, there is always google translate, or several other online translation utilities that can assist you.

    LOL! would the nomenclature be applicable to humans? Could we then refer to our author as Clemens Joseph?

    This is exactly why I've been preaching that the carnivorous plant naming conventions, especially for genera which readily hybridize, need to change over to a grex and cultivar system like that used for orchids. Such a naming convention completely eliminates the ambiguity in complex hybrids because it allows growers who aren't good with detailed botanical nomenclature to accurately track hybrids and cultivars/clones without introducing transcription errors in sales and trades, or when making new ID tags.

    How can we petition to have this system adopted? It's desperately needed for Sarracenia, Pinguicula, and Nepenthes.
