Compilation based on modern publications
P(aknia) 2008, P2(Paknia 2010), F(irouzi 2011), G(hahari 2011), H(ossein 2012), BT (2015), G2 Ghahari (2015)
|Some of the published
identifications appear to rely on the keys in Collingwood &
Agosti (1996) which may need to be relied on with some caution. I am
hoping to sight the Collingwood collection in the near future.
Initial collection by Omid Paknia (appear as "g." in Paknia et al, 2008, Table 1); unless other colleagues named.
