  1. Mark Ridgway  Thanks for those adds David. Chris wanted to check this one as ALA is lacking this taxo.

    • David Francis  Hello Mark, I took off the name 'Caenoplaninae australopacifica' pending further checking as it's not on the ALA.

      • Mark Ridgway  Thank goodness you are checking. The binomial name for this was given as 'Lenkunya adae' on BowerBird by Leigh Winsor... not that rubbish I wrote before. (copy paste slip-of-the-mouse)
