There is already a standard government list, now in its 2nd
edition, for Common and Scientific Names of Aquatic
Invertebrates [land, fresh, and marine] from the United
States and Canada. I am familiar with the mollusk volume.
Has anyone considered using these volumes? I for one would
not like to have to once again produce a valid species list
for a different government standard list. And the same could
probably be said for other molluscan taxonomists who were
involved in the mollusk volume.
