I hope they will set up their own codes and governances. We need proliferation as Paul Feyerabend said.

How can we laymen distinguish among true and "scientifically proven" (if this concept means something) new species and fake and "vandalic" ones?
Is something comparable to this vandalism in search of fame happening for european species too? For instance with vipers? :shock: :lol:
