[Taxacom] Homonymous synonyms / cosmic order

I should have known better than to step into what has become a mess. Now 
Francisco is supposing that some people (I am not sure if he was pointing 
directly at me but that conclusion seems unavoidable given the context) 
cannot distinguish between Code-compliant new names and nomina nuda. Since 
Francisco specifically refers to my Japanese examples it is inescapable that 
he questions that the names I referenced were Code-compliant.  I somehow 
doubt that he will accept my assurance that they are available names 
although in common usage.

As for the two European examples mentioned by Francisco. I assume that both 
names were introduced in the same genus.  In many such cases they were not. 
This is important as the second (or even more) usage, if considered 
available (as I believe it/them to be) exists for purposes of homonymy.

I am finished with this subject and apologize to all list users for my 
verbosity. I will be pleased to correspond on this subject individually with 

dick p.
