Hi all.

I just had a glance at the glossary, and under "Amphibian", the description states that the three orders are Anura, Caudata and 'Caecilia'. The last one is not correct - it is either Apoda or Gymnophiona (the latter is 'more' correct, I believe).

Just thought it was important to have that correct!

Not related but also a correction, i saw the other day that the photo gallery is still using the name Mesotriton.

I've changed the category name, which should help with the burning sensation. Many of the images loaded have the old name associated with them so keep the eye drops handy.

Part of me was tempted to change it back to Triturus - must be a Friday thing.
