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 checklist.

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. Our last checklist revision was on 15 Sep 2021, so species that we have voted on since then will not be reflected in our official checklist until the next revision. Until then, these are considered provisional changes.
