Well no, "scientific name" isn't what I'm looking at--it is the "date
stamp" that each one carries.

Granted, the list which you allude to is a mixed bag of real and legendary
places.  But it seems to me that each, even the legendary ones, has a date
associated with it.

Basically I wonder how your reading has accomodated Gondwanaland.  There
must be a hundred ways, or at least a few dozen.  Rather than I list a few,
I would rather you just tell me.

Your message above suggests you are looking at/for a single wave of
colonization?  Another interesting datapoint in reconstructing the mosaic
of your personal reading.
