Tirbak, Hellner, Boylan, Nhan, Brousseau, Derugin, Watters, Castro, Eberl,
Gallagher, Schoneville, Harlan, Gurr and more others than I can recall. I
quiz any of them when I get the chance, and my memory really *isn't* my
second shortest thing. ;-)

Brian Watters, of course for the East side of the divide, plus a few
The Germans are your best source for Cameroon, Gabon, etc. (west). Between
Andreas Kleisch (who is speaking at BAKA on the 22nd) and Wolfgang Eberl
(NCKC '98), you can't go too wrong. IMHO, we have no domestic source as well
informed as they. They do suffer the NIH syndrome in not accepting some ICZN
nomenclature decisions gracefully.
OTOH, Prof. Huber seems to not fear osteology or DNA contributions to
accurate ID, and (sometimes if grudgingly) follows proper nomenclature.
How about recruiting Prof. Collier?
Good luck. I'd love to see that column. Once you start it, those folks above
will probably make sure you have any new info they get. Since we know Roger

import, or collect domestically, for that matter.

"LIBERTY" is a well-armed lamb denying enforcement of the vote.
