OK but if we follow then we'll have a lot of species to be swapped !

Hi, after having swaped Cirsium sect. epytrachis to Lophiolepsis , i m considering more and more it was a wrong decision because it has create an useless confusion and a huge work is required to restaure all taxas, ID.
So my question is simple, should I swap Lophiolepsis to Cirsium sect. epytrachis and add deviation ?

I'm afraid I don't know very much about thistles. I would look to see who are top observers/identifiers in that section, and also see if there is any relevant literature and if the authors have iNaturalist accounts, and tag those people in.

I don't always agree with POWO's lumping and splitting decisions, so I think sometimes making deviations as you've suggested is fine, but I don't know enough about this clade to judge what the right treatment is.

no specific opinion. I'd need to check the phylogeny in order to having one...

yes but to be a monophyletic group do not necessarily exclude the whole genus also is a good monophyletic group...
