    All ETBs have been grouped under Corallus caninus, both Northern and Amazon Basin. According to a paper published by Dr. Henderson, the Amazon Basin ETB will now be referred to as Corallus batesii.

    Has this been approved or is it just currently one of those jostling back and forth games that taxonomists seem to love so much?

    Looks like the research has been published and the new classification is being accepted.

    This is the most serious move towards the individuals species with backing that I have ever seen.

    It looks to me that this will in fact be accepted going forward.
