Fly Genus/Species Reclassifications

January 13, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

It’s no secret to those those who endorse entomology as a path to greater understanding of flies and fishing that genus and species reclassifications have become commonplace in the past few decades. One enterprising fly fisher in Washington state took up the challenge of listing, in a single table, all of the modern mispellings and reclassifications he could find at the U.S. government’s Integrated Taxonomic Information System site. Here it is, provided by Pat Donoghue on his Nova Scotia fly fishing site. (Thanks to MoldyChum.com for digging this one up.)
