On a lighter note, my "Curious Scientific Names" webpage has finally
found a home on a new server:


As always, if people are aware of names that aren't on that list or
Menke's original list, or can give dates for some of the names that
are listed, I'd be grateful.

Unfortunately, I don't think the things on that page offer convincing
evidence for the scientific legitimacy of taxonomy. ;-)
