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

>But I suppose one could argue that perspective<

To my mind, nobody should want to "argue that perspective", but the problem is that it serves as another source of confusion, i.e. someone wants to verify Code compliance, so they look at the publication record, suppose it has no archive indicated, so click on the journal and see that record also has no archive intended. How many people would then think to search for duplicated journal records to check if any of them have an archive indicated? Even if they did, how many people would consider that a duplicate with an archive indicated solves the problem? It is all just too complicated!

 I can address this question. 
 When a duplicate record is discovered in ZooBank, it is
 merged with the correct record, and all the records linked
 to the duplicate get transferred to the correct.  I think
 that an error of this sort should not be regarded as a
 failure to indicate an intended archive, during the period
 of time when the record was linked to the duplicate journal
 record.  But I suppose one could argue that perspective.
 
 Also, I should point out that
 in ZooBank, either the work itself (e.g., article) or the
 parent work (e.g., Journal) can have the archive
 indicated.  So just because a particular journal does not
 have an indicated archive doesn't mean a given article
 within that journal doesn't have an archive indicated
 directly.  This has happened a few times, where an author
 of a paper in a journal that does not include an indicated
 archive has instead asserted the intention of archive the
 article directly (e.g., in Zenodo or Internet Arcive).
