   Here, it's:

name: Lat/Lon
proj: ll
datum: nad83
ellps: grs80
towgs84: 0,0,0,0,0,0,0
no_defs: defined
unit: degree
units: degrees
meters: 1.0

and the results with the re-ordered attributes:

v.in.ascii -n
out=biosites format=standard col='x double precision, y double precision, y
double precision', x=1 y=2 cat=0 --o
WARNING: Vector map <biosites> already exists and will be overwritten
ERROR: Error reading ASCII file: (unknown type)

   It must be something simple that I'm doing incorrectly when I used to not
make this mistake.
