      Description

      The family Personidae appears to exist twice in the Catalog of Life. Once in molluscs and once in insects:
      http://www.gbif.org/species/search?q=Personidae&rank=FAMILY&dataset_key=7ddf754f-d193-4cc9-b351-99906754a03b
      http://www.gbif.org/species/123790536
      http://www.gbif.org/species/123620363

      In the current CoL there is only the mollusc family:
      http://www.catalogueoflife.org/col/browse/tree/id/481ccf1aa30e15f54086c8aef1b47f55

      It appears that there are indeed 2 families with that name existing, Personidae Novokshonov 1995 which is extinct and Personidae Gray 1854

      We seem to merge them in the backbone and only the insect version remains which is unfortunate. Allow the 2 families to coexist
