Some systems of site designation are designed primarily for filing site records; it is possible to design systems which can be used to mark specimens also. In 1953, the author devised a system of the second type for the whole New World; it was published in Peru by Duccio Bonavia in 1966. A comparison with the River Basin Surveys system illustrates some of the problems involved in uniform site designation.
