that is auct. :http://en.wikiped...i/Auctorum

Does that mean: it is valid species name, but something named x auct. is realy y badly named as x, and that (missaplying) is done by many authors ?

Hope that my statement is not even more complicated than that on wiki (-:

In zoology either it is a (commonly used?) misinterepretation or misidentification of a species name:
Musca complexa Linnaeus, 1758 sensu auct.
Musca complexa Linnaeus, 1758 misident. sensu auct.

Misidentification basically means that there is a type (or other material) that can pinpoint the exact identity of the species.
If such material does not exist it truely becomes a matter of interpretation of the description. In that case there can be opposing opinions and than you may have two 'species':
Musca complexa Linnaeus, 1758 sensu Fallén, 1810
Musca complexa Linnaeus, 1758 sensu auct. non Fallén, 1810

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
