A verbatim record of a sugenus
results in a name usage record
where genus name, instead of subgenus name, treated
as the canonical name.
I suspect it is issue at the data sorurce, because Ficus (Diconoficus)
is the generic part of species name under the subgenus such as
Ficus (Diconoficus) gayana but never a subgenus name itself.
Looking at species record under the subgenus, however, e.g.
gives Ficus gayana as the canonical name.
This interpretation, i.e. omitting subgenus part from a canonical name,
might be issue of data parsing.
Or, is it an extpected client task to check verbatim records also?
