I think it's Binomial-nomenclature (I know it's spelled wrong):) Too
many classes in latin and science(although science wasn't too bad).
Anyways, I was in a discussion with some people yesterday and they were
still convinced that large mouth bass are in the cichla nomenclature. I
dunno when it was changed or who did it, but it is interesting.
