but does it follow either of these guides on common names which don't seem to follow each other.

Collins, J. T. 1990. Standard common and current scientific names for North American amphibians and reptiles. Third ed. SSAR Herp. Circ. No 19. 41pp.

Norman Frank and Erica Ramus (1996), A complete Guide to Scientific and Common Names of Reptiles and Amphibians of the World; N G Publishing, Inc, Pottsville, PA).

The rub is not that there needs to be a standard but that why not work on something more realistic and useful to the scientific cummunity world wide. It would seem simpler to work on a standard that would actually be useful to all concerned.
