*******************************

Dear colleagues,

the Zoologische Staatssammlung Munich will celebrate its bi-centennial 
birthday in early 2011. Accordingly, we are currently looking for taxon 
names associated with our first director ("conservator"), Johann Baptist 
Ritter von Spix.
Find enclosed a preliminary list, what we already have collected.
We would be very grateful, if you could inform us about any other taxon 
name associated with Spix.
Many thanks in advance.

Gerhard Haszprunar
