Hi all

After some interesting discussion in the tea room, several of my
colleagues and I are seeking other's opinions on the following
question:

Are names of groups of genera with the ending -(i)eae that were
published in Roemer and Schultes' edition of Syst. Veg. considered to be
valid equivalents of subfamily names for the purposes of priority?

The two view at present are 1) Yes, they do and 2) No they don't,
because the authors didn't recognise the family (previosuly published by
Brown 1810)
