Species?

The entry goes out of its way to detail the taxonomy of the animal but never makes it past Genus, what is the species name? I should have caught this is PR really, but I missed it. Oh yeah, and only the Genus and Species should be italicised, to be absolutely accurate.

Psh, those pesky medlding editors, huh? I tell you.

You meant subfamily Dipodinae though right?

So, "Jerboa" refers to all species in the Jaculus genus?

Thanks for the reply, great entry smiley - ok

Yeah a Jerboa is anything in the Genus Jaculus.

What I should have said that there are 5 sub groups to the genus not subfamily... yeah thats right I think!
