[Taxacom] New genus name in title

It is extremely unlikely (under the current Code) that enough information would be put in an abstract to make a name available from the abstract, and I'm not sure that abstracting services publish abstracts before the article is published? At any rate, the waters of publication dates are already well muddied in the brave new world of electronic publication, for quite different reasons (I've seen some pretty odd things happen on ZooBank, relating to preregistration!)

 From dim memory, there were
 concerns, at least in the past, about the use of names in
 titles and abstracts resulting in them being published by
 abstracting services before the publication of the
 "official", intentional description, muddying the
 waters as to publication date etc.
 
 
 These concerns may predate the
 4th edition (which contains additional safeguards against
 inadvertent publication of a name) - not sure. Perhaps
 someone else can advise?
 
 
 Cheers,
 
 
 Wolfgang

 After having looked at 10,000 descriptions of
 reptiles (literally!) I find it rather annoying that a lot
 of authors no not mention the name of the new species (or
 genus), neither in the title nor the abstract of their
 papers. How do we know what they are talking about if they
 don’t say it?
 
 Journal
 editors and reviewers should be a bit stricter with this
 kind of stuff and make it mandatory that new names are
 actually mentioned in the title or at least the abstract.
