nerdy question about "affinis"
A recent conversation with a friend put a bug in my ear, and I'd like to
bounce something out there. We were admiring the affinis primigenium GBH
88/10 that so many of us keep, and he was wondering how a fish in the
hobby so long had no straight I.D.
This evening, I was looking at my Aqualog Old World Killies 1, at sp.
aff. mirabile Takwai (P. 106), which has dropped the "sp. aff." in the
North American hobby. And so, I have the same question from the other
side - what process is at work here? Does someone know the
in-the-hobby-history of the two fish?
