>We can be happy if they cite even vouchers or try to identifiy the
collections (instead of simply taking the label name),

Even taking a label name involves seeing a specimen, which is ahead of
relying on some name output from a database (do not trust any molecular
clock that calibrated by "I looked up the higher taxon in Paleobiology
Database").  Better citation of "how do you know what species this is and
its classification?" would promote better science as well as increasing
taxonomic citation.
