I am describing a new bug from Arizona. A colleague of mine says that to
name it with reference to that state the name should be arazonaensis. But I
have also seen species (e.g. the desert scorpion Hadrurus arizonensis) with
the other form. Under whatever rules apply is there anything incorrect with
arazonensis which is a little easier to say than arazonaensis? Any informed
opinion most welcome.
