Taxing Taxonomy Top 10

Another top ten featuring inverts was recently posted by Christopher at the Catalogue of Organisms - his top ten phylogenetically problematic taxa. I guess this is a good list to have a strong showing of inverts in, but then again?

7 out of 10 are inverts including one of my favorites - Pycnogonida.

Gotta check out the complete list including why they are so challenging to taxonomy.

  1. Potential conflict of interest: As an invert worker myself, I have to admit that I might be more aware of issues with inverts.

    Besides, I forgot about the spirochaetes.
