I've seen some discussion amongst those who have bought the new Campbell and Lamar (I have not, as I have the original and don't need a new set of coffee table books).

Several people have emailed me mentioning that C&L (2003) mentions the NW South American bushmasters as Lachesis acrochordus......Does it cite a paper? To my knowledge, the only designation of this species has been in the 2002 Revision of Dean Ripa's Bushmaster book. Do C&L actually credit Ripa with this?

Also, what's the status of Central American C. durissus? To my knowledge WW was doing work on this, yet his study is not finished yet. What paper is cited as the reason to rename Central American durissus(is it C. simus?)???

Thanks.

Matt
