I'm not sure that this was at all helpful! The addition of the archive info isn't date stamped (at least not for public view). Now the record misleadingly looks like valid online first publication on 4 January 2016: http://zoobank.org/References/07554C01-DEC3-4080-A337-B1F46BC9070F

As far as I know, the print edition may not be published yet (all we know is that it is the January 2016 print issue, which could be published in February for all we know). So there may be no way to determine the true date of availability for the new names. Even if we can get a definitive date on the hard copy, this doesn't help much, unless it is on or before 4 January 2016.

 regarding these

 essentially the same type of amber deposit:

 In other words, this may not be a matter of competing for
