Abstract
    Since the 1992 Rio Convention on Biological Diversity, the Earth’s biodiversity is a matter of constant public interest, but the community ofscientists who describe and delimit species in mega-diverse groups, i.e. the bulk of global biodiversity, faces ever-increasing impediments. Theproblems are rooted in poor understanding of specificity of taxonomy, and overestimation of quantitative approaches and modern technology.A high proportion of the animal species still remains to be discovered and studied, so a more balanced approach to the situation is needed.
