Hi everybody!

In these days I've heard that now milii are in Nephrurus genus. It's right? Someone could explain me for once and ever something about it, maybe tell me the website or journals where it's explained?
From many years they are been changed from one genus to the other, now I don't understand anything!!! I'm getting crazy!!!:-x

Sorry if my english is not right ;-)

Yes, officially its all Nephrurus now but few Australian publications have accepted this as gospel yet (the new Wilson and Swan, released last week is still Underwoodisaurus).
I believe it was Baum 1990 that changed it all around (again!!!!).

Thanks for your answer! So now the correct name is Nephrurus milii, right?

There's an interesting discussion dealing with this species and a few others about the name controversy: http://www.geckosunlimited.com/community/taxonomy-systematics/27018-when-name-not-name.html
