[Taxacom] New taxonomy in Nature's Scientific Reports

This isn't a big deal! There are only less than a handful of articles with new taxa. It was up to the authors to ensure Code compliance. The website seems odd, though, and I can't seem to find a way to get a pdf of any of the articles! Anyway, there are plenty of other journals publishing more new taxa than this one, all without valid ZooBank preregistration!

 Has anyone here published taxonomy in
 "Scientific Reports", Nature's
 online-only open access journal?  Why aren't they
 registering new taxa in
 ZooBank for authors?
