[Taxacom] Good practice?

Description of the problem:
Someone would like to publish the high number of new taxa in the  
single paper. There is no way to include full descriptions and  
illustrations in the paper because it covers also ecology and  
coevolution of the taxa. This means that the descriptions and  
illustrations should be included in the Supplementary material.

Is there "good practice" how such cases are solved so that they are  
also in accordance with botanical/zoological codes? For example, is  
it enough to have in the paper name of the new taxon, short latin  
description and information on the type?

Thanks in advance!
