Default Re: Scientific Nomenclature

I feel most of the issues on this forum, although I love having the option to clarify my knowledge of scientific names - it does avoid a lot of confusion, although feel the pain of changing names! I recently read that A. mexicanum was previously Sirendum mexicana (c.1950). Even weirder, the same source argues that there has been debate as to how many types of axolotl there actually are.

Apologies for the one trick pony mentality on my part - I only have axxies.
