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.

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)?
