Species Status Codes

AL - Accepted Lumps for species that are deemed to be conspecific and are DELETED

AS - Accepted Splits that we deem valid and ADD to Master List

DEL – Deleted from Master List or from active consideration of Proposed Splits

DIS - Changes or corrections of a species Range

ENG – Changes or corrections of English names

EXT--Extinct Taxon

NEW - a newly described taxon as opposed to a revision of prior taxonomy, splits or lumps

PHY – Change that reflects new information on the phylogenetic relationships of the taxon

PL - Proposed Lumps for species that are likely to be treated as conspecific with another taxon and that may be DELETED

PS - Proposed Splits for splits that are being reviewed

TAX - Change of scientific name, including issues of nomenclature (priority, gender etc) and revisions of genera

Proposed Splits/Lumps

This page is a working list of Proposed Splits/Lumps (PS/PL) and Newly Described Species (NEW) that are candidates for addition to or deletion from the IOC World List. Accepted Splits  (AS)  will be added to the World List. Others will be retained as active candidates or deleted  (DEL) with the option of future reconsideration.
