Ichthyology would be a good event if it would be paired with something else relevant to marine life

Or there could be an event on marine invertebrates, including the more well-known phyla like mollusca, cnidaria, porifera, platyhelminthes, echinodermata, arthropoda, and maybe also have the rarer phyla like ctenophora, tardigrada, kinoryncha, hemichordata, etc.

You have never experienced the majesty of an ID event - who wouldn't want to identify mushrooms?
It's ok, I'm with ya Quiz, I want to ID mushrooms.

Although a lot of them are highly toxic, and some can make you sick just by smelling them, so those probably won't be on the list =)

I vote mammals. Who doesn't want to ID Cougars, Elk, Field Mice, House Mice, White-footed Mice, Norway Rats, or Black Rats?

I would absolutely support a mycology event. That would be very useful.

I would not be opposed to mammalogy, but I probably wouldn't do it.

I'm pretty sure that the best way to create a new event is to write up trial event rules, submit it to soinc, wait a long time, then get really really lucky. Maybe if we had a poll or petition we could do it faster, but it would have to be a very good event idea.
