Drop down list issue

The protocol PDF states, when a scan does not also list a species name for associated taxa, to select simply the genus name with no species from the drop down list. However, I could not find the fitting option on the drop down list.

    The entry you would select is listed under "Hymenophyllum J.E.Sm. (Hymenophyllaceae)". Along with the genus name ("Hymenophyllum") what you are seeing is the author name ("J.E.Sm.") as well as the family name ("Hymenophyllaceae").
