Hi Taraxacom People,
                                         I run a website on wildlife as an educational resource for schools.  Though I have acquired a considerable reference library the most difficult information to be sure of is taxonomic, hence I have joined this list.

Right now I would like some help with the merostomata, having checked 6 or more resources (books) I find them divided as to whether there are 4 or 5 species.  I have only tracked down four species names, they are.

Limulus polyphemus   Eastern America
Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda  India
Trachypheus gigas S.E. Asia
Trachypheus tridentatus  S.E. Asia

A solution to this question would quite pleasant thankyou all.

For those with personnal invertebrate specialities I would be happy for your comments on what is already written.  Follow the appropriate link below and look for your particular group.

Finally I am always looking for world lists, to whatever level, that I can either use or put a link in to.  This applies to vertebrates also though these pages are all under various stages of construction.
