Time for a little rant. These are NOT Latin names they are SCIENTIFIC names.

While they are often derived from Latin they are also based but also from Greek and other sources. Some are from the names of the people who discovered the species in question.

OK rant over. There are some nice stamps here. If I only had time to start a new collection.
