errata

If there is a new publication, and in the new publication reference is made to
a new species description, and if this new species description is referred to
twice in  title and introduction with one name (but without explicit figures or
details) and the description and figures themselves are headed under another
species name, what of the two names, in the end, is the correct name?

Furthermore, it seems plausible that the name mentioned in introduction and
title follows correctly the rules of latinization, whereas the name in the
description itself seems to be wrongly latinized (will have to confirm this).

Are there any ways to heal the trouble by linking the publication to a list of
errata, or would it make everything still worse?

 Desperately, as it is our own publication,    Thomas
