Spanish term or phrase: Spho
Is this some kind of abbreviation? Scientist talking about insect genera and species: "Hay centenares de ejemplares indeterminados que no parece haya visto. Géneros enteros no consta que hayan sido revisados como Spho (seguramente politípico y polimorfo), los mal conocidos Hadrothemis o los complicados Pseudagrion y Chlorococypha, apenas etiquetados por Ud. ¿quiere decir esto que muchas especies las ha estudiado pero no las ha etiquetado?"
