The taxa (species or genera) below were described or revalidated since the deadline for the 1st edition of the RepFocus e-book (31st December, 2018). Most of the taxa are new to science, but some may be former synonyms revalidated to species (or genus) status, subspecies elevated to species status, or subgenera elevated to genus status. They have now been added to the taxonomic lists of this website, but not the regional checklists, the biodiversity pages, or the literature lists. As mentioned, most of the descriptions were published after 31st December, 2018, however, some may have been published earlier, but were omitted in the 1st edition.
