  1. Thanks for being accurate with the names! Beautiful species. Posted 5 days ago
    1. Thanks Ferdy, doing it since I get additional info when verifying the ID, otherwise, it would have been much easier to just follow Wikipedia, which is not completely wrong, just that they are using the older name. Too many changes nowadays, it's not easy to keep track or know which is the 'newer' name or the reclassified genus. Posted 4 days ago
