I hesitate to even raise the thought, but someone else has already
mentioned the dreaded word molecular, so here goes: the time may be
ripening to plan for documenting when and how the basis for a
determination was molecular, as in the CO1 DNA barcoding for critters.
On the plus side, perhaps more molecular determinations will lead to
more time, interest in,  and opportunities for taxonomists to work on
all those undescribed taxa (and botched classifications?). And now back
to hiding/lurking... Cheers,
