Stop describing fake species!

Stop describing fake species!
Under each stone does not live another species new to science.
If you follow the logic of some "specialists", then Homo sapiens can be divided into several species, and dogs into several genera.

Taxonomy in 21st Century: Hobby or Business?

Recently was published excellent paper of Fominykh, Zamotajlov, Khomitskiy & Titarenko, 2020 "Contribution to the knowledge of Carabus (Lipaster) stjernvalli Mannerheim, 1830 in the Caucasus, with description of two new subspecies (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Carabini)", "dedicated to study of variability of species Carabus (Lipaster) stjernvalli", although, in fact, the sole purpose of the work was to describe new taxa in order to sell their Paratypes.
But, this work perfectly proves that there are no differences between the previously described subspecies, as well as the newly described ones. New synonymy in the species Carabus (Lipaster) stjernvalli proposed here 12.2.2020 by A. Anichtchenko

Occam's razor

It is desirable for each taxonomist to follow the rule of Occam's razor: "Entities are not to be multiplied without necessity" (Non sunt multiplicanda entia sine necessitate). The purpose of Taxonomy-science is to understand and restore order, and not to describe as many new species as possible.

Two new species of Pterostichus Bonelli subgenus Pseudoferonina Ball (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Pterost

Published: 26 July 2011 19:04Category: Contribute0 commentsPublished by: Jean-Pierre Lebel; jp.leb
Two new species of Pterostichus Bonelli subgenus Pseudoferonina Ball, are described from the mountains
of central Idaho: Pterostichus bousqueti Bergdahl [type locality = small tributaries of South Fork of Payette
River watershed, ca. 1170 m (3840 ft), 44.0675°/-115.6822°, near Lowman, Salmon River Mountains,
Boise County, Idaho, U.S.A.] and Pterostichus lolo Bergdahl [type locality = Cottonwood/Orogrande
Creek, ca. 870 m (2850 ft), 46.5528°/-115.5522°, North Fork of Clearwater River watershed, Clearwater
Mountains, near Bungalow, Clearwater County, Idaho, U.S.A.]. Males of P. bousqueti and P. lolo are easily
distinguished from each other and the seven previously described Pseudoferonina species by the form of the
median lobe of the aedeagus, and from most individuals of the other species of Pseudoferonina in Idaho by
features of pronotal shape and macrosculpture. Both species appear to be obligate ripicolous hygrophiles,
restricted in distribution primarily to the margins of small montane streams in forested areas. Widespread
intensive stream surveys for Pseudoferonina over many years indicate the geographic ranges of both species
are highly localized, and additional undescribed species may occur in Idaho.
