Aspiring Mad Genius

I understand the concept, but there are more genera not listed on the CITES appendices then are listed. Seems like very shaky ground for USFW to attempt to stand on by issuing a blanket ban. Plus, where's the notice from USFW or US Customs?My understanding is that,anything described as "sp",has no species name.So,a genus of say...Grammastola sp blue,they have no idea if that is the species from that genus that is CITES listed.
Think genus...sp...white,or red, or Santa Catalina.....they claim they have no species name,so it may or may not be on CITES.Therefore,all imports without a proper genus and species ID are suspect.
Again,im just relaying what i was told from a highly regarded importer into the US.And they are highly regarded here on AB.
