I am working on a spreadsheet that correlates the latest IOC 3e list (with
subspecies) to the relevant pages in the HBW volumes - should have it
finished in a week or so if anyone wants a copy.

Anyway - I have found that a subspecies of Common Eider is listed as *Somateria
mollissima v-nigrum* which is confusing me as I thought all components were
"simple" words - my software certainly did not expect a hyphen in the
middle of a component.  It is also listed (as *v-nigra*) on the Avibase
system. Anyone have an explanation for this?
