thanks to Felix for sharing his views on this topic. I differ however,
insofar as this does inspire confidence in the TC-ISBN because it is being

have no confidence in the ATL list and plenty of confidence in the TILS

whom, there will continue to be differing views on some of these topics.  I

rejected Harry's excellent published work on C. idella without consultation
and on the apparent basis of an opinion by one committee member who has done
no research on Celastrina that I am aware of.  I hope that Felix will, if he
has not already done so, propose a revised version of what should go on the
