-----   Botanical nomenclature has always been governed in a democratic
General Committee for Botanical Nomenclature

Even democracy can be abused. If I am correct that the current Type is
for an African taxon, then one might ask how many botanical
nomenclaturists are in Africa vs in Australia-South America. Perhaps I
am wrong, but it might seem as if non-Africans are making a grab for
what is currently an African type to suit their (non-African)
convenience, never might the convenience of African taxonomists.
