Neocaridina shrimp reclassified

http://msjinkzd.com/news/reclassific...-dwarf-shrimp/
Neocaridina heteropoda has been reclassified as Neocaridina davidi. This encompasses all the rilis, sakuras, painted fire red, orange, black, and cherry shrimp. Snowball and blue pearl, which were formally called cf. zhangiajiensis, are reclassified as Neocaridina palmata. While this information is not currently available in English, Werner Klotz and Andreas Karge published it in the new (3rd) edition of “Süßwassergarnelen aus aller Welt”, Dähne Verlag, ISBN 978-3935175-90-6. In the next few months, a new book will be coming out by Chris Lukhaup, as well, that will outline many of these changes and will be available in English.

Thanks for the info, it's hard to keep up. I always wondered who exactly makes those type of decisions? Is it peer reviewed stuff?

in my mind I see a smoke filled room with shadowy figures around a table discussing in hushed tones...

It is done by taxonomists (in this case Werner Kotz of Austria and Andreas Karge). Crusta 10 is the loose group who has taken responsibility for figuring out the taxonomy of many of the shrimp. Crusta10 is a consortium of people working on freshwater invertebrate taxonomy and biology. In short, a group of scientists study the shrimp and give them real names and classifications,w hich can be charted and documented so that people stop assigning names based on appearance and so that the discover of new species are recorded. They do field studies and collection trips and collaborate with hobbyists, importers, and breeders.

I can never tell if I am interesting or just a really, really big geek.

...and geekiness is bad why? I've been into aquariums since...well since Reagan was President-the first time -and I still love the scientific minutia of the hobby. And while I'm confessing here YES I am a LOTR and Trek freak. I was lucky, my husband is even geekier than myself and doesn't mind my having live cultures in the 'fridge-he has learned that the ones marked DO NOT EAT are not to be opened LOL.
