Looks correct for the most part to me. Very cool.

Two that you might think about changing are Dendronotus diversicolor and Doto amyra.

Last I heard from Dave Behrens the current thinking is that D. diversicolor is a synonym of D. albus.


I'd also probably be more cautious about the Doto ID. It's a Doto for sure (and good on you for being able to find one!) but Doto IDs are hard. D. aymra may actually be 4 different species and there are a couple of other species that might match your animal too; Doto kya and Doto lancei. That would be a good picture to send to the forum to see what Behrens and Goddard think.

Otherwise looks great.
