Re: Nothobranchius sp. Kilombero Tan 95/4
I guess to name a new species you have to do a pretty thorough description
of the anatomy, etc. and all in latin. Of course, then you should go visit
collections of type specimens in collections around the world to make sure
it hasn't been described before. When folks don't do this, we get
synonyms, and eventually someone discovers that the species had already
been named, so the name changes, much to everyone's annoyance. I think
that's how it works.
