Great site Richard.
You've done an excellent job of repeating the same findings that Hoser made in his 2000 paper to the effect that the NEW GUINEA King Browns are in fact different to the Australian ones.
Your site shows they have different size (smaller), scalation and morphology to the Aussie ones and this is exactly as Hoser did.
Science requires that a result published by one person can be duplicated and validated by another.
You've done Hoser a favor by doing this and have in my mind most certainly confirmed the original diagnosis of Rossignollii as a valid species being distinct from Australis. By the way, Richard, did Hoser pay you to put up the site?
