Good to see you online Richard.
I am the bunny who's used the name "lancasteri" and am in the poo for it.
At the end of the day, what I say or do makes no difference to whether or not A. lancasteri W and W. stands as either a species or a name. The snake itself will do the former and your 1985 paper will do the latter.
I am of the view it is a species and hence we agree so far.
In terms of the name "lancasteri", I have doubts and always have done so.
It is a pity that this revolves around "technical" issues, but ultimately blame for this must rest in your description and it's ambiguity, not with myself or others who have questioned it.
I have no agenda to "sink" any name, but I do have an agenda to get the nomenclature right, if only to shut up my critics.
But while I've got you there, what's your views on the relationships between NW WA Acanthophis and the others from that part of the world.
ALL THE BEST
