As a proud author in an internationally respected peer reviewed
journal of a new plant family that no-one has acknowledged or even
bothered to refer to in the quarter century since it was published, I
can not possibly agree to this.

It is so very tempting it is to launch into wikipedia and wikispecies
in a defiant act of self vindication and self-righteous assertion of
superior judgement.  But modesty forbids...  :)
