The herpetological taxonomy papers by Richard Wells and C. Ross Wellington are among the most controversial ever published. For reasons of nomenclature, they remain indispensable reading for anyone interested in Australian herp taxonomy, but are generally hard to get hold of.

In order to faciliate access to these papers, I have placed PDF scans of the following Wells & Wellington papers online:

Wells, R.W. & C.R. Wellington (1984) A synopsis of the class Reptilia in Australia. Australian Journal of Herpetology 1(3-4): 73-129. (Snake pages only)

Wells, R.W. & C.R. Wellington (1985) A classification of the Amphibia and Reptilia of Australia. Australian Journal of Herpetology, Supplementary Series 1: 1-61. (Snake pages only)

Wells, R.W. & C.R. Wellington (1987) A new species of proteroglyphous snake (Serpentes:Oxyuranidae) from Australia. Australian Herpetologist 503:1-8. (Description of Cannia weigeli - scan of faxed copy)

Thanks to Carl Sundberg for scanning these in and to Richard Wells for allowing me to post them.

Cheers,

Wolfgang
