[Taxacom] a game of 2 letter generic names

2 letter generic names pose some frustrating problems for searches. For example, if you do an ION search, you get a big red error message saying 'Query should be at least 2 characters long' !!! Eg. http://www.organismnames.com/query.htm?q=Ea&searchType=simple&so=a0
I currently know 3 such names in zoology, Aa, Do, and Ea (see details here: http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:2_letter_genera)
does anyone know of any others (in zoology)?
