Hi, don't have at hand a code, any insight would be appreciated:

If there is an insect species (e.g., _Insectum insectis_ Gonzalez 1851)
and then a couple of subspecies are proposed in a later revisionary work
under the same species name (e.g., _Insectum insectis subinsectis_ Smith
1954 and _Insectum insectis adelphoinsectis_ Perez 1973), who is the
author of _Insectum insectis insectis_ mentioned as a trinomen for the
first time in the latest work (as _Insectum insectis insectis_ Gonzalez
1851)?  Should it be _Insectum insectis insectis_ Perez?

Thanks very much.
