Micranthus - Not everyone is aware of the 2013 publication

Thanks to Pacific Bulb Society for the link - one is able to download the full text.
“In 2013 P. Goldblatt, J.C. Manning, and R.E. Gereau in an article entitled The Cape genus Micranthus (Iridaceae: Crocoideae), nomenclature and taxonomy revised this genus, adding four new species and changing the name of one of the original three.” (https://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/Micranthus)

The one I was looking for was Micranthus plantagineus Eckl.
PBS has Micranthus plantagineus Eckl. (formerly Micranthus junceus (Baker) N.E.Br.
Fernkloof has https://www.fernkloof.org.za/index.php/all-plants/plant-families/item/micranthus-plantagineus (old name) Micranthus alopecuroides)

Nothing to tell us about this on the Red List .
http://redlist.sanbi.org/genus.php?genus=1568

SO THE LINK to the original PDF - free for downloading is https://www.researchgate.net/publication/272902664_The_Cape_genus_Micranthus_Iridaceae_Crocoideae_nomenclature_and_taxonomy.

May be helpful for the iSpot dictionary.

I see that there have been changes after 2015
