I suggest you place an embargo on your thesis for a year or two to allow
time for the papers to be published.
Thus your thesis is not 'published' (made public) until the embargo is

Subject: [Taxacom] Species descriptions in thesis

Dear Taxacomers,

I am describing a number of new species in my Ph.D. thesis, ahead of the
peer-reviewed journal publication of the descriptions. However I would like
the published paper to be the official description. Since my thesis will be
online, and thus technically fulfill the requirements of the Code, I would
like to include a statement that the descriptions therein are not the
"real" species descriptions.  I feel I've seen similar statements, but
can't find any examples now that I'm looking for one. Does anyone have a
suggestion for a standard statement that should be included?

Thanks in advance!
