Rep: jaster has started on the right path
Default Re: Scientific Nomenclature

Great post! This is basically what I have done all semester in herpetology :) Things are much easier when names cannot be confused (even though we had a turtle clade with "Geomydidae" which is a mamalian family ). You mentioned the capitalization of genus AND species that some people use and for some reason I feel a cringe when I see that.
