Thanks for the message. My motivation was to find out if all other crosses between the different colour forms of macranthos with all parviflorum must be called xGisela. This year I have seedlings crossing my very attractive large pink macranthos (bought as speciosum but I am not sure exactly what speciosum is) with my favourite multiple flowering parviflorum. Also it seems silly if for example I crossed C.macranthos rebunense with C. parviflorum pubescens to still have to call it xGisela? It is better to use the subspecies name and call it rebunense x pubescens.
What set me thinking along these lines is the fact that I saw on Carson Whitlow's list of hybrids that calceolus x macranthos is registered at Tanja Pinkepank. Surely this is a remake of x ventricosum and should have the name xVentricosum unless he can claim it is based on certain selected colour forms.
