The list has grown to over 800 entries over the weekend, I’m plugging away, but it is slow for one person.
Many of the updates seem to be of marine gastropods being imported from EoL. I’ve noted several issues:
- the longstanding issue if duplicate genera being imported is still going on
- some of these are extinct
- most problematically as I have just discovered, EoL appears to be well behind in keeping in synch with MolluscaBase which we usually defer to for taxonomy here so many deprecated names are being brought in which is creating a right old mess,
Additionally, there are a good number of subfamilies, tribes etc that have been imported in other areas, that at some point need to be tackled, with the big issue of course being populating them and finding sources to manage these kinds of levels.
Any curator looking for a task is welcome to try and help.
