Dear Francisco:

It would be nice if you could, every so often, credit others with some small 
degree of perspicacity.

When I listed the three names in my posting I should have included the "n. 
sp." that the respective authors each placed after their introductions. I 
failed to realize that I would possibly be accused of not being able to 
recognize the introduction of a new name. That they each clearly intended to 
introduce a new name is enough. It is not necessary to try to "get into the 
minds" of the authors to try to guess what they knew or did not know.

As for the other part of your message, I disagree about the multiple 
introductions of names based on non-binominal usage but will not attempt to 
open a discussion on that subject.
