One thing set off an alarm for me. You delete an item out of the loop  
variable tOneGenus:

delete item -1 of tOneGenus
put tOneGenus & cr after tURLs

Generally, I avoid manipulating these variables; I treat them as read- 
only. I'm not sure why, but for me it's taboo. What happens if you  
replace those lines with:

put (item 1 to -2 of tOneGenus) & cr after tURLs
