The missing Narcon Island:
Several years ago, I believe Alex Muir at what was then BM(NH) went
through the arguments about Narcon Island. He is of course interested
since Baird's material is there.
A confusion with another island, is of course possible, but I would like
to make the suggestion that when the species are revised and types
re-examined, the original location be given, as is. If necessary with
comments and citations so that later scientists will not have to figure
out why we suddenly started calling these type localities Marion Island,
when labels and ledger entries read Narcon. Let us keep the level of
confusion as low as possible.
