Why has Chrysanthemum segetum been moved to Glebionis segetum?

Glebionis segetum now is the correct scientific name of this species. There was a final decision that Chrysanthemum indicum should be the nomenclatural type of the genus Chrysanthemum. So all species formerly placed in Dendranthema now have to be named Chrysanthemum, and for C. segetum and C. coronarium a new generic name was needed. Sorry about this, but there is no way out.
