Mainly an early usage largely superseded in the more widespread species=* q.v..

This key also suffers from the problem that it is related to using name=* as the base for this concept, but the botanical name is not the name of the objects mapped, but a general classification scheme.

It also conflicts with the use of suffixes in the key name=* for names in other languages (e.g. name:pt=Parque da Colina).
