Re: [Killietalk] Code Woe's
No, those are the investigators who formally described the species. In a
scientific publication the species name is typically followed by the
describers. You will find that after every species in AWOK. If you look
in the old JAKAs the authors of articles, at least the more scientific
of them, followed the same convention.

>I have a question regarding collection location data. Perhaps I just misunderstand, but when you read in Wildekamps AWOK series and look up the name Aphyosemion cyanostictum, it is followed by the names Lambert and Gery and the date 1968. What exactly is this data respectfully about? Is it the men who found them first and then had them classified? And is this the year they were originally collected or classified?
>I ask this question because I have been researching data for a Code library for my diapteron site and have found it to be confusing. I have Roger Langtons, Wild Collections of Killifish 1950-2003, and he doesn't list any diapterons being collected until 1972, by Herzog, Wolfgang & F. Bochtler?
