/Englera/ 20 is the proceedings of the Nomenclature Section at St. Louis.
Paraphrasing is dangerous, but the arguments run as they appeared in
the discussion here. There is a risk of confusion, and perhaps of more
practical importance, of nomenclatural instability (the /Code/ is
retroactive and past typifications are affected: thus current names are at
risk). Instances are reported of collectors who mounted more than one
gathering (i.e. made at different times) onto a single herbarium sheet.
It was deemed to be a can of worms too dangerous to open.
