Many of such renowned websites have such human errors for sure. It's
us who copy and paste unscrupulously, without checking much.
Thanks for pointing out. You may try writing a mail to eflora
especially the Ericaceae authors. They will certainly change it in no
time.

Dr. David F.Chamberlain of RBG Edinburgh is one of the authors for
Ericaceae and Rhododendrons on eflora of China.
D.Cham...@rbge.org.uk is his id.
