flecto, flectere, flexi, flexum (III)

Orberg, Collins dictionary and Whitakker's Words give this as above: flecto, flectere, flexi, flexum (III) but 501 Latin Verbs gives it as flecto, flectere, flexi, flectum (III)

What's odd is that none of these sources indicates an alternative for the Supine..

501 Latin Verbs is wrong. Lewis and Short's Latin Dictionary has "flexus", as does the Oxford Latin Dictionary, and a search of http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/ shows no matches for "flectus est" or "flectum est", but several for "flexus est" and "flexum est".

Thanks Craig. I also noticed (in case the publishers read this forum) that 501 latin verbs doesn't have cresco, crescere in their index despite the fact that it's in the main text itself.
