 Very interesting and hot discussion point !!!!!!

 Could you please consider in your answers also the following
 symmetrical case:

 Some hypothetical name-donator has the name Tschud, then the species'
 name should be "tschudi", but, in fact, it is "tchudii".

 is this OK, or do I have to take action ?
 (if so, I immediately will, as this case exists)
