Goody,No problem. I have finally converted to the new name since ASIH, SSAR, ISH and CNAH all recognize it at this point.Thanks, Lisa
And David, you were just supposed to pick one, not copy and paste everything! Ha!
Lisa, I realized after I posted my suggestion that you had already rung in before I hit the button to send it. I did not mean to seem like I was bucking your suggestion/scientific name. I have taken to suggesting 2 on the frogs, toads, and ratsnakes due to taxonomic battles over genera. I personally have grown tired of seeing names change frequently and have decided to simply hang on to Rana, Bufo, and Elaphe for now. Again, sorry if it seemed like I was contradicting you in any way. :-)
Sorry Lithobates catesbeianus is the correct spelling.
Lat: 35.54, Long: -82.55
