The "Anguis-group" has another project now and will correct it there, if necessary (Jandzik, pers. comm.) ;)

The terra typica for lineata is inside the Torino museum :lol: (Laurenti 1768: hospitatur in Museo Turriano),
but has been restricted to Vienna by Mertens & Werwuth 1960 (Die Amphibien und Reptilien Europas. 3. Liste).
Dely (1981, Handbuch Vol. 1, Echsen 1) gives Vienna too - following M. & W. 1960?

Sorry, I was completely wrong with the terra typica "Torino" :oops:

An hour work for "nothing" ;)

Nice piece of historical digging, Mario! So lineata might be a nomen nudum?

"At adultus, horrendus aspectu !" :lol:
Hopefully, we don't spot this monster in Peru ;)

Anguis cinerea is dead, long live A. veronensis!

The authors of the Italian Anguis paper had the chance, to change the species name from cinerea to veronensis, before officially published ;)

David Jandzik ask me to put this statement (he sent me by email) here into the forum:

'Dear Mario (and colleagues),

thank you for your excellent literature survey, we really overlooked Pollini's letter and his name which proved to be available for the evolutionary lineage of Anguis we revealed in Italy and France. Fortunately MPE was so kind and allowed us to correct the article before assigning the issue and pages to it, so now there is the corrected version available on the sciencedirect webpage and it will be in this form in its final version. Hopefully spreading of the the junior synonym of A. veronensis will be just limited now.

On behalf of my co-authors I would like to strongly appreciate that you notified us and also that you agreed that we can use your information to correct our mistake ourselves.

Best regards,
david jandzik, corresp. author


I have changed the PDF (PDF-5678) in DB to the new version too ;)
