Did you note which of the one's not giving authors' names indicated a
particular work or works that were used for identification and/or as a
source of names? If people merely copy the citation from a flora or
fauna, it is somewhat misleading (though standard practice) to cite
authors of names - one has not checked the original paper. But I shall
conform to the standards in my field - it is not worth worrying about.
