[Taxacom] New genus name in title

Since there is no “page precedence” in the current Code, all mentions of new names or nomenclatural acts are deemed to be published simultaneously if the work itself was published at one time and not in parts.

There is no problem with new taxa being named in a title or abstract as long as the name in question was published somewhere in the paper in a way that fulfills the Articles of the ICZN Code to make the name available.

To the best of my knowledge there are recommendations about this:
http://www.nhm.ac.uk/hosted-sites/iczn/code/index.jsp?nfv=true&booksection=appendixB

However not implicit rules with the code, ie recommendations 8 and 11 which
suggest its the first mention after the title that is the first declaration
of the name, and also that they should not be in the abstract, tables etc,
in which I feel the title is among these.

As this is recommendations though I guess it is not enforcible under the
code and their are plenty of new species and genera names described where
the new name appears in the tittle. Also if it does not include gen. nov
after it in the title then this is not the initial declaration of the name
anyway.

This is a bit of an ignorant question, but did not find an answer in the
code of zoological nomenclature (not to say that it is not there, just that
I have not seen it). I would be interested to know what the code says about
a new genus being mentioned in the title of a paper before it is actually
described and diagnosed within the paper. Is it permissible by the code?

Many thanks,

John Grehan
