Re: More on the genus problem

 L[h]erminier has had a list of many stated definitions, yes, but that
 hardly equates to 146 *conceptions*; many of these are the same or
 similar conceptions restated.

Even very similar "species concepts" (as they're traditionally called) regularly lead to different decisions over whether something should be considered a species. I guess these are counted separately; at least they should be.

The two "Biological Species Concept"s (a silly name, but entrenched) certainly do lead to very different decisions, even though they're very similar.
