That's exactly the problem with automation ... and ZooKeys is a very machine friendly journal!

Hi Rod,

When I looked your viewer isn't picking up the many bolded subheadings in
Zookeys. At least in the Alpheus paper (Firefox & Explorer). Thus in the
viewer A. macrocheles looks like a synonym of a n.sp. (!) when it is
'Comparative material examined.'
