Dear Colleagues



The volume 7 of the journal *Dumerilia* was published on 21 July 2017. Its
contents are given below.



Most of this issue is devoted to the activities of the *Linz Zoocode
Committee* (with Reports of its Sessions 7 to 14) and of the *Observatory
on Availability in Zoological Nomenclature* (with its first Report).


The latter paper presents several cases of recent taxonomic publications
which are either unavailable for having been published only online before
2012 or after 2011 but not respecting the 2012 Amendment of the *Code*, or
which contain unavailable nomenclatural acts for other reasons. It also
presents 7 papers correcting such problems in recent publications
concerning various zoological groups (Mammalia, Coleoptera, Diptera,
Nematoda and Kinetoplastida).



As already announced in the *Observatory* forum on *Research Gate*, all
colleagues who are either aware of or authors of papers with similar or
other problems related to nomenclatural availability are welcome to provide
information in this respect to the *Observatory* or to submit directly
corrective papers to *Dumerilia *for publication.



The journal *Dumerilia* is published by a small non-profit organisation and
unfortunately cannot provide free access to its papers, but authors can
choose to have their papers published in open access for a small fee, or
readers can download the other papers also for a modest sum.



The website address of the journal is:
