Neocaridina heteropoda reclassified as Neocaridina davidi

Chris Lukhaup of the Crustahunter team reports on Facebook today that Neocaridina heteropoda, the species consisting of the "Red Cherry Shrimp" and other popular variants, has been reclassified as Neocaridina davidi.  Discussions on the post indicate there is a paper on the change that is circulating and more details will soon be shared in an upcoming edition of the magazine Caridina, as well as in a new shrimp book.  Interesting how things change!
