    @Katja Schulz: All right, i got the reason. " Do you think T. quelpaertensis and O. limbosperma should have separate EOL pages?" A simple question, as usual with taxonomy not that simple to find "right" answers ;-) Dear Katja, the cited ITIS report of T. quelpaertensis is right so far, as it seems you missed the additions to listed taxa saying "auct. NON". In other words several unnamed authors mixed up Thelypteris (Oreopteris) quelpaertensis with the mainly European T. / O. limbosperma. Currently there are 2 accepted species, which are likely to be separated from Thelypteris and sorted to Oreopteris by most colleagues. BUT things are even more complicated, (sub-)specific borders of all populations do not appear to have been propperly investigated and cleared. In other words, there could be a single species with disjunct populations, possibly parted into 2-3 (4?) subspecies, or all populations might be valued as distinct species. Thus i may not answer your question at last, can not know if the Asian quelpaertensis and European limbosperma will turn out as distinct species. Maybe there is a chance to clear up systematic relations, there are some people at inaturlist.org, so i could start a project to gather data and samplings. I will ask George Yatskievych and do guess he knows colleagues who liked to do some gene sequencing and analyzing. At the moment i would not do further taxonomic changes here. Best regards Erwin

    @Erwin Gruber: Sorry Erwin, I have no deeper insights into this issue. I was simply following ITIS when combining the names for this page: http://www.itis.gov/servlet/SingleRpt/SingleRpt?search_topic=TSN&search_value=505480 Do you think T. quelpaertensis and O. limbosperma should have separate EOL pages?

    @Katja Schulz: Dear Katja, in case i got it right, your moving of T. quelpaertensis to O. limbosperma will follow your conclusion that both were truly synonyms, or am i wrong? Several aspects do seem to be uncleared yet, at least in my mind, still i did not search a lot. 1st.: Is T. / O. quelpaertensis, meaning the E Asian population in especial the one of Jejudo, Jeju Island a TRULY distinct species, or better to be treated conspecific to T. / O. limbosperma ? 2nd: Where do populations of W North America plus Newfoundland do belong to, are these more close related to European or Asian populations? 3rd: Should all together represent a single species, possibly parted into subspecies, or are American ones a third distinct species? Maybe you do know about more recent insights, otherwise we might try to compare all populations ourselves. Cheers Erwin
