Dear All,


I completely agree with the previous posts. But unfortunately not only
incorrect identifications but sometimes completely nonsense entries remain
for years uncorrected in the database. See the entries
AY178854<http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/viewer.fcgi?db=nuccore&id=30025138>,
AY187629<http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/viewer.fcgi?db=nuccore&id=26422832>
and
so on which refer to an "earthworm" species *Lumbricus bimastus* that is a
combination of a correct (*Lumbricus*) and an incorrect genus name (*
Bimastus* instead of Bimastos).


                                Regards,

                                                      Cs. Csuzdi
