Hi Mary,

In zoology (as opposed to botany) there is no requirement for a combination to be previously published to use it - anyone can recombine a specific epithet with a different genus if they have a reason to do so, the original authorship remains, it is just cited in parentheses to show that the genus has been changed (also a rank change of itself does not generate a change of authorship). Thus:

Canis mesomelas Schreber, 1775
Canis schmidti Noack, 1897
or:
Canis mesomelas schmidti Noack, 1897

Or the same if considered better placed in Lupulella: (no "combining author" is cited or needs to previously exist)
Lupulella mesomelas (Schreber, 1775)
Lupulella mesomelas schmidti (Noack, 1897)

The comma between the author name and the year is optional. I prefer it but some do not, which is also fine.

Hope this helps, - Tony

I should have been clearer. I found Lupulella mesomelas<https://openzoomuseum.org/taxa/index.php?taxon=341486> (Schreber, 1775) for the species- but have found no evidence that the appropriate combination for the subspecies has been formally published. Not sure what to do.

Hi again,
        Sorry, I didn't know that you meant the authors of the current name combinations.  The first usage of Lupulella mesomelas appears to come from a 2017 paper (see weblink below).  They don't seem to have mentioned the subspecies schmidti (just the species).

Subject: [Taxacom] Please-can anyone send me publication information for these two names?

Lupulella mesomelas
Lupulella mesomelas schmidti

What I am looking for is authorship and year of publication for citation in standard zoological format.  I know the combinations are being used.
Thank you.
Mary
