[Taxacom] Now 2 species/genera in Placozoa...

BTW Thomas, what about this fairly common scenario: 
A journal does have a record on ZooBank with an intended archive, but an author creates a duplicate record for the journal, without an intended archive, and preregisters a publication under the duplicate journal record (erroneously thinking that the journal has to be registered again anew each time a publication is registered!)

 Unfortunately, it is more
 complicated than that.
 The original work was
 published e-only and without evidence in the work itself of
 registration in ZooBank.
 The journal PLOS
 BIOLOGY does not provide an intended archive under its
 registration in ZooBank.
 Therefore, this
 work cannot be regarded as published for the purposes of
 zoological nomenclature in its electronic form.
 Thus, unless there is a printed version of the
 work, the correction does not point to a published work.
 Even the correction itself does not comply with
 the ICZN in its electronic form.
 
 The placozoan names therefore remain
 unavailable.
 
 The Commission
 is aware of the problems associated with such published but
 non-compliant works.
 Until a solution has
 been implemented, it is strongly recommended to consult with
 the Commission before attempting to 'resurrect'
 names and nomenclatural acts.

 Just for
 completeness, this is to note that the authors of Eitel et
 al.
 (2018) have now published a correction
 that includes the relevant zoobank LSIDs to make the names
 mentioned above available.
