hi, im kinda new to herp, and im trying to do research on the torrent salamanders, and wondered what species i should be referring to; Olympic or Southern?
Since we aren't required to identify down to the species, I suggest you include information on both because they make up the family, which is what you do need to identify.
got it, thanks!

Except you'll often be shown a picture of a specific species and asked to identify the Family or Genera. If you don't know the species in a Family, you're at a significant disadvantage...

Small correction: every specimen is in a specific species

Hey! So I'm new to this whole forum thing, but I just wanted to say that the materials you can bring for Herpetology changed from last year. I didn't realize it until I read the materials list, so for anyone who also hasn't read through the paper yet, you can't bring a book anymore like last year. All information has to be in a three ring binder that can be up to two inches thick.
so we cant bring those fat books with pictures?

Theoretically you could photocopy pages and put them in your binder, or just rip pages out. It would be more efficient to just make a binder, though.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I know stuff about oceanography, saltwater, and birds, yay for the third time!

In my experience, the people who failed the most and worst were the ones who didn't make a binder. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Agreed. Without a binder you can't be competitive. The information in any of the guides vary greatly in depth of information from genus to genus...

This is what my partner and I did for Rustin last year when we didn't have a binder at all...we got 43rd I think? I agree, binders are more efficient.

Yep! It's also easier to organize binders the way you want & it's easier to write in them.

Is the scientific name of a rosy boa Lichanura trivirgata or Charina trivirgata because on the list it says that the genus is charina and so it would be the first part of its scientific name but anywhere I look it says that it is Lichanura is this just another name for the genus or what? The same thing for lined snakes I get a whole different genus for them so what should I do?
