On another server there has been a discussion about whether to credit
authorship of a taxon to Linnaeus (if described in the 10th ed.) or to Linné
(if described in the 12th ed.).

Most malacologists now use Linnaeus regardless of date, a position I have
long adopted.  However, I would like to know how his name is handled in
other fields.

Thank you.
