Yes, there is going to be some big changes with the King Cobras. I heard something like 6 as well. Originally I thought it was going to be 3 species with subspecies extention. But I honestly don't know where it is now.

With the Lothobates, Rana deal. I liked your link. But the CNAH is pretty good about holding on changes if something does not compute. This is where I was thinking we had something to stick with for a little bit that isn't going back.

"Che et al. (2007 Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 43: 1-13) provided additional evidence to support the recommendation of Frost et al. (2006; see above) that North American ranid frogs be placed in two genera, Rana and Lithobates. "

I am not extremely huge into taxonomic changes either, but I do like when people bring new things to my attention to keep the thought process on relationships relatively sharp : ) Now you have me wanting to contact some people to see where the Ophiophagus complex sits.
