Arnesen (1920), not Arnesen (1932)
Added on: 2014-03-17 12:37:39 by van Soest, Rob

Topsent (1920) cited this paper, which proves that it was already available at that time for science. Consequently, Arnesen's paper and her new species need to be cited as 1920, not 1932. ... [Read more]

We take the view that continuity and internal consistency of the WPD classification dictates restraint with implementing high impact changes. ... [Read more]
