Does any taxacomer know of a simple way to look for
available generic names? So far, this is what I use:
From 1758-1965: Neave, Nomenclator zoologicus (in 4
volumes, 1758-1935; vol. 5, 1936-1945; vol. 6 1946-1955,
Edwards & Hopwood eds.; and vol. 7 1956-1965, Edwards &
From 1966-1977: Zoological Record, vols. 103-114.
From 1978 on: library search on line, for anyone having
access to it ("it" being, I think, Zoo. Rec.). I understand
getting on line may be expensive.
How wonderful if all these lists were amalgamated into one
grand, updatable list as new genera are named, and
affordable for all to use on the internet.
