Taxonomy questions - United Kingdom

Postby Doug » Sun Sep 07, 2008 9:01 pm

Hi there.

I have tried to setup the UK list in the application as a country "template" and have pretty much got it fully up to date but have a few taxanomic questions?

Anas carolinensis (Split from Anasa crecca)
Branta hutchinsii (Split?)
Micropalama himantopus (???)
Carduelis cabaret (Split??)
Chlamydotis macqueenii (Mcqueen's Bustard??? Split)
Lanius meridionalis (split??)
Melanitta americana (Me'lanitta nigra??)
Phylloscopus humei (Split???)
Phylloscopus ibericus (Split???)
Phylloscopus orientalis (Split???)

Your comments will help me get the full species list in the program up to date.
