A somewhat parallel issue: If, in the systematics section of a work, an author [Jones] includes a heading for a subgenus [B-us], but each species-entry under that heading is titled merely by the combination of genus and species names [A-us c-ensis], how should later workers cite that author's usage in a formal synonymy?
Jones has clearly established the taxonomic concept A-us (B-us) c-ensis, but typographically has used only the string A-us c-ensis. Should a later worker cite Jones's reference to the species as A-us (B-us) c-ensis or as A-us c-ensis?

It's your call.
