[Taxacom] Revision using taxonomic concept approach

Looking at this sentence from the abstract: 

'Prior to this study, Minyomerus sec. O’Brien & Wibmer (1982) contained seven species, whereas the monotypic Piscatopus sec. O’Brien & Wibmer (1982) was comprised solely of P. griseus Sleeper, 1960 sec. O’Brien & Wibmer (1982)'.

Surely, this is just an overly complicated way of saying: 

'Prior to this study, Minyomerus contained seven species, whereas the monotypic Piscatopus was comprised solely of P. griseus Sleeper, 1960 (O’Brien & Wibmer, 1982)'.

Where the O’Brien & Wibmer, 1982 citation in parenthesis is just a regular citation for the information expressed in the sentence.

 Dear Taxacomers:
 
    This revision explores of the use of
 taxonomic concept labels to
 integrate past, current, and presumably future inferences
 about this
 particular (so-perceived) group (e.g. Figures 1-4). One
 might think of it
 also as a biodiversity database design sketch.
