Re: [Killietalk] New Notho
For the time being, you should refer to that Notho as: N. aff. melanospilus
Kisiko TAN RB 05-47 or simply N. species Kisiko TAN RB 05-47.
Incidentally, it is not that "new". We have collected it on numerous
occasions in the Ifakara area (Kibasira Swamp) going back as far as 1995,
and on Mafia Island in 2002.
It is presently undescribed but a description is in the advanced stages of
preparation. Obviously, I cannot tell you what its name will eventually be.
