By definition: no.

There is more than one way to describe the name of a species, but that is 
not one of them. It can be described as a string of characters, with one of 
these characters (but no more than one) being a space, the others being 
letters (or hyphens). Under the ICBN, it is allowed to add a diaeresis.
