treated as Plectocephalus americanus in POWO, please discuss before swapping

Taxon swap to Plectocephalus americanus completed.

Swapping seems ok to me. Its sister species (Plectocephalus rothrockii) is already in Plectocephalus on iNat (and in POWO, of course). Seems like a straightforward choice to move this taxon to Plectocephalus.

sounds good to me if you want to try out doing a taxon change.

(for some background, last year I had gone through and flagged a bunch of taxa that a) have a lot of observations, plus b) were treated as a different name on POWO. I did this to try to head off potential deviations from POWO before the swaps were committed, rather than after!)

Ok, so I think I have done the taxon swap. It is here:

What do you think?
