Dear All,
     I assume there are some Greek scholars on the list.  I often see
Haplorhini spelled with a double "r" (Haplorrhini), and also
Strepsirhini spelled Strepsirrhini.   Since both forms of these
spellings seem to be fairly common, perhaps it would be best to go with
the proper Greek spelling.  I just don't know whether the proper
spellings are with a single "r" or a double "r".  Would like to see a
discussion on this and perhaps settle it once and for all.
