Mandatory correction for gender concordance. 'The noun Amphiesma is undoubtedly neutral according to Greek-English dictionaries that we consulted, and Toriba (1994) was correct in underlining this point overlooked by most authors. In the present list, we therefore treat specific epithets in agreement with the neutral gender of the name Amphiesma.' (David, Vogel, and Pauwels, 1998)
ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
