so are you looking for the original descriptions of all the species here?

That's the next step so I can source them better, and they're easier to find for the step after the checklist is complete which should be key making. Shouldn't be too difficult to source since so far the source I've been using is pretty extensive in terms of synonyms, I also want to double check everything and add any new species since the article was published as well.

Oh and by the way the ¹'s are temporary, they will be replaced with the actual descriptions (the 2007 article will still be sourced). Also the links to each description will be embedded so depending on format you can also just click on "(Ewing 1924)" and you'd be brought to the page for whatever species is being mentioned.
