 Whether the problem lies with the journal
editors or printer is immaterial, it creates a messy situation. There is
probably little that can be done about it, but it would be nice if
societies that like to publish taxonomic papers would consider voluntarily
adopting a policy of stating the actual date of printing on the cover.<<<

Some do.  This can be important when something is described twice, about the
same time.  Precedence must be determined by the date each journal came out.
