unanswered Japan List Updated to IOC

4 years 11 months ago #1194 by Mike Prince
We have just updated the Japan list on BUBO Listing following an update of the underlying taxonomy to the latest version of IOC. There were several changes and we have applied most of these automatically, but you will want to check your lists for newly available species.

In particular the following species from the old list are no longer recognised as full species. We have automatically updated existing lists to use the new lumped taxon:
Mongolian Gull Larus mongolicus
Heuglin's Gull Larus heuglini
Ryukyu Green Pigeon Treron riukiuensis
Japanese Skylark Alauda japonica
Gray's Warbler Locustella fasciolata
Siberian Stonechat Saxicola maurus
