[Taxacom] Query: any taxa above genus level honouring scientists?

Hi all,

I am posting this on behalf of a colleague who wishes to remain
anonymous.   Is anyone aware of examples of taxa *above* than the genus
level where the name explicitly honours a distinguished scientist?  Names
typified explicitly or implicitly do *not* count for these proposes
("Bloggsidae" does not count if it is named such because the type genus is
"Bloggsia", which was named after Joe Bloggs).   It does *not* matter here
whether the taxon had an explicit rank, or no.
