Absolutely. In a course I recently took at university, the subject of
published names was one of the topics. The following rules seem to apply.
Hudson First to publish the name
Nuttal ex Seem Nuttal described it, but Seem published it first (except
Rehder in Sargent Rehder identified it, published in a larger work by
(Gravenhorst) Nardmann Gravenhorst first identified the species, but placed
it in the incorrect genus. Nordmann renamed it correctly.
These are all examples from the past.
