Actually John, the zoological code, unlike the botanical code, says very little about how to cite authors, so et al. is fine.

I expect that the answer is somewhere in the Rules of
Nomenclature so I hope I will be forgiven my asking such a
in this venue. What is the recommended or accepted form of
for a species that has multiple authors, in this case an
Thitarodes biruensis (Fu and seven other authors, 2002).
Should it be
Thitarodes biruensis (Fu et. al., 2002) or something else?
parentheses as it was named under a different genus name.
