  Interesting, I just want to point that the parataxonomist idea was in 
practice way the barcoding hype reached "the market". In 1998, INBIO in 
Costa Rica already had parataxonomist working in the field (mostly 
collecting). These parataxonomist were trained in the taxonomy of 
selected groups and the results, I most say, were very impressive with 
some of them becoming experts in their respective fields.
