    Oh sure Bruce...have Piper do it...LOL!

    It was suggested in '96 that dalessandroi be named a separate species, but there was a lot of debate around it in late '90s. Some even suggested besseae f. flavum. Currently the accepted name is simply besseae. Not even var. dalessandroi. Just besseae.
