I assume you are referring to the original (old !) core species list for
Nothobranchius. As I mentioned in an earlier contribution on this matter,
"......N. rachovii KNP Black was not on the list of Nothobranchius proposed
for the conservation program at that time. There were various criteria set
up for placing a species on the list and rarity in the hobby or in the wild
was simply one of them and not necessarily the ultimate determining factor.
I won't repeat all those criteria here because we are in the process of
re-evaluating and revising the entire program, but, for example,
representativeness of a group was an important factor."
The only species on the original Nothobranchius core list that I thought
might be endangered at that time (1994) was the Kayuni State Farm population
of N. kafuensis and (as I explained in an earlier message) these fears
"......the conservation program is undergoing extensive review and revision.
A new Notho list will have to be drawn up based on modified criteria and
more up to date information about the status of the various
species/populations, so I really don't see the point in publishing what is
likely to be a redundant list. It might only confuse the issue."
