Interesting letter to the editor in the most recent American Scientist. 
American Scientist might have inadvertently published a new genus of 
tardigrades, except that it had already been published in an abstract.


Back when the old ICBN required Latin for descriptions and diagnoses, 
this sort of thing didn't happen often for plants.
