Following reports of geographical errors on a couple of the new peso bill designs, experts recently found more inaccuracies in the yet to be released bills, according to GMANews.tv.

Scientists criticized the incorrectly written scientific names of the wildlife featured on the back of the banknotes. For instance, Tarsius Syrichta on the P200 bill should be written as Tarsius syrichta. Note that the name is italicized and the second word does not begin with a capital letter. Citing scientific nomenclature rules, Saksi reports that scientific names may be underlined, if not italicized, and the second word may only begin with a capital letter if it is a proper name.

Experts also said the Blue-naped Parrot on the P500 bill should have a red-not yellow-beak and a yellow-not green-tail. Fe de la Cruz, spokesperson of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), said the inaccurate colors might be due to a limitation of the colors in the design.

In earlier reports, according to GMANews.tv, the BSP said the new bill designs are a work in progress and that the mistakes will be corrected.
