No more Galapusky - Paper!

Or is it, Duskapagos?

Anyway, check this out.
I was sent to me by the Saffron Pimpernel under the heading of mumbo jumbo - and for a genetic ignoramus like me, it sure very much is! 
But having double checked with my trusted geneticist, she confirms that Gavin and Will's putative lumping of the Dusky and the Galapagos is no more, meaning that the two species continue to be valid.

Likely not a Dusky (see the map at the top) but a Silky like first assumed!
Ain't taxonomy fun - and it's so easy, too!:)
