Posting of "Master List of Online Taxonomy References"

Just in case there are those editors that don't regularly visit the "Taxonomy Proposals" forum, I thought it was worth mentioning here that Charley Eiseman has begun work on creating a list for various insect groups of links to online sources for taxonomic reference.

Please take a moment of your time to view Charley's post and consider bookmarking it for future reference. Here's the link:
