Aus dem Inhalt:

The Australian Freshwater Crocodile was formally described as Crocodylus johnsoni intended to name the species after Mr. Robert Johnstone, but mispelt the name as “Johnson”. Cogger et  al. (1983) reviewed the nomenclature and reinstated the name Crocodylus johnstoni, which is the name most commonly applied in the scientific and general literature, and in Australian State/Territory and Federal legislation. This correction was unnoticed by some (King  and  Burke 1989), so “Crocodylus johnsoni” still appears in some contexts (CITES and IUCN).
