NOTE: The nominative masculine singular in botanical epithets is usually not -er, as in classical usage, but -is, following the usage of Linnaeus: Lathyrus palustris, Lathyrus sylvestris, Ranunculus acris, Scirpus palustris, Sonchus palustris [classical Latin acer, campester, lacuster, paluster, silvester, terrester], see Stearn 1983 p. 95, who implies that the masculine '-is' is generally used, rather than -er in the nominative singular.
