I assume that in practice there will only be lots of such cases 
(specific names with the same spelling combined with generic names
with the same spelling) in quite unrelated groups (the workers on 
such groups being unaware of each other's efforts), but there 
appears to be no such requirement:

   "57.8.1. Homonymy between identical species-group names in 
    combination (originally or subsequently) with homonymous 
    generic names having the same spelling but established for 
    different nominal genera [Art. 53.2] is to be disregarded."
