[nafex] Re: craetagus/crataegus

I suspect that craetagus is the original spelling (and I suspect the 
ae is supposed to be that merged 'ae' you see in older (and often 
British) writing (Encyclopedia used to have an 'ae' in it)).

So probably neither is actually 'wrong', just variant spellings, one 
older than the other.

But I'm not speaking from actual knowledge here.
