Issues in Myrosmodes filamentosa

Where do I report issues in your data pages? You have Myrosmodes filamentosa as being a native of lowland Guatemala. I know that Missouri Botanical Gardens has a herbarium sheet with this name from lowland Guatemala, but it has to be a mistaken identification (they don’t have it listed anymore as being from Guatemala in Tropicos). The plant is an endemic of the northern Andes in habitat quite different from lowland Guatemala. It is found in Ecuador and Colombia. Tropicos has the plant from Ecuador collected at 3200 meters: http://www.tropicos.org/Name/23508628?tab=specimens

Thanks for reporting! I have removed this species from the Guatemala checklist:
https://eol.org/pages/49063089. It should acquire a record for Ecuador when the Tropics resource updates next.
