Recent RC Decisions

Here we compile the Records Committee's votes over the last 90 days. The committee operates on a rolling-vote schedule and vote as we receive records and compile historical records. Our votes on records pertain to individual records, while votes on species pertain to our categorization of a species in our our live checklist page.
Votes on species
The Records Committee frequently reviews the categorization of species in our checklist. Species new for Singapore, for instance, are categorized based on available evidence. The latest live version of the checklist, which incorporates these changes, is available at our live checklist page.
