Taxonomy news

Just two lumps, but of a kind some people might find interesting:
1. Gould’s mouse (Pseudomys gouldii) isn’t extinct: it is conspecific with the (barely) extant Shark Bay mouse (Pseudomys fieldi). The latter occurs on a few predator-free islands which are very difficult to visit if I remember correctly.
2. As I’ve been saying for almost 30 years, Chinese mountain cat (Felis bieti) is just a subspecies of wildcat (F. lybica).
