Dear All:  please be alert for the case, every day more common, where a
team of people work up a paper on the biology of new species xx, and one of
them is a taxonomist who actually describes the new species in THAT same
paper, and is the sole author of the new name in that paper (even though
the paper has multiple authors).  In some sense, the entire paper may be
viewed as the protologue, but the authorship of the species is just that
one member of the team.
