botanical anagrams (LONG! about 630 Lines)

Probably it is only a waste of bandwith ... but near Xmas there should
be some unused bandwidth somewhere .... :-)
OK. in the following there is a completely useless list of anagrams of
botanical genera (with indication of family).
I generated the list automatically starting from an authoritative database.
So don't flame me if there are uncorrect genera/family names.
(I think that certain anagrams depend on typos in the original database,
for example (filago = ifloga = lifago = logfia) all from asteraceae,
but I've not the time to check all the entries.)
I think that certain anagrams are funny, at least for
a taxonomist. (Btw: I'm not a taxonomist).
All the best.
