Configuring pop-up expression to group by common feature

I've created an arcade expression that pulls species data from a related table. Instead of having Lower_Taxon as one of the listed attributes, I'm wondering if I can sort or group the list by it. 

This is my current code:

var relatedrecords = FeatureSetByRelationshipName($feature,"Provincially_Tracked_Species_Detail_CRCA");
var popupString = ""
for (var f in relatedrecords){
    popupString += Text(f.Com_Name) + TextFormatting.NewLine +
        "Scientific Name: " +
        DefaultValue(f.Sci_Name, 'no data') + TextFormatting.NewLine +
        "Taxon: " +
        DefaultValue(f.Lower_Taxon, 'no data') + TextFormatting.NewLine +
        "SARO Status: " +
        DefaultValue(f.SARO_Status, 'no data') + TextFormatting.NewLine +
return popupString

This is what the results look like now:

And this is what I'm hoping for them to look:

Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to accomplish this.

Grouping by an attribute could be a bit tricky, but doable. For the sake of having a concise expression, you may wish to take advantage of custom functions.

function addToString(string, feat){
    string += `${Text(f.Com_Name)}
    Scientific Name: ${DefaultValue(f.Sci_Name, 'no data')}
    SARO Status: ${DefaultValue(f.SARO_Status, 'no data')}

    return string

var popupString = ''

var relatedrecords = FeatureSetByRelationshipName($feature,"Provincially_Tracked_Species_Detail_CRCA");

// return set of distinct taxon values
var taxons = Distinct(relatedrecords('Lower_Taxon'))

for (var t in taxons){
    var taxon_name = t.Lower_Taxon
    // Add taxon heading to popup string
    popupString += taxon_name + TextFormatting.NewLine
    // Filter related records for matching taxon name
    var taxon_records = Filter(relatedrecords, 'Lower_Taxon = @taxon_name')
    // Add filtered record details to output string
    for (var f in taxon_records){
        popupString = addToString(popupString, f)

Unfortunately, this isn't working for me. It doesn't return anything.
