Re[2]: Subspecies vs. species?

     The question was excellent AND horrible: excellent to ask and horrible 
     to answer: maybe that's the definition of a good question. Don't stop!

Thank you all, 
you made a "Blind man " seeing (a liitle bit).
I understand now, why this question is so "HORRIBLE, UNANSWERABLE", but 
before asking here Aroid-L, I ask many people, read in many books and no 
one and no book ever give me such good explanations about this problem. 
There were always those "something small things" or this "certain 
different enough" thing, which Julius also wrote, which differs a species 
from a ssp.. 
And in life there are rules for everything, why not for this? So I 
thought, when I ask here, someone can give me an answer. 
Now I know that it is such a small border between species and ssp., that 
only can be seen, with much experience and maybe "feeling" an naturally 
many time spending on research ans comparing.
In the future I will try, not to ask after such horrible and 
unanswerable things (I hope!).
Thank you ALL once more.
