You want to bump these up to the subgenus, instead of using the "informal clade names" that are approximately equivalent to the section rank?

@crothfels when species are removed from a infrageneric group, it is procedure to swap to the lowest common denominator group above the distributed species, and recreate the group as a sensu stricto. In this case, all of these groups had species removed, so IDs of sensu lato would not be equivalent to a group containing an incomplete cohort of species, necessitating this merge to preserve ID accuracy.

I created the other smaller clades as complexes, but none of these were 1:1 accurate with our prior arrangement of species.
