Hello Taxacomers --

I confess, I contacted the author and the editor and pointed them to the recent Taxacom archives.  They are aware of this spirited discussion.

Has anyone contacted any of the authors yet, as suggested by Roland? I sincerely hope so. It would be a courteous/collegial thing to do. I would do but have deleted the email with the link to the prepublication.

From Roland: My suggestion was and remains:
If the existence of this nomen nudum is a (potential) problem for researchers in the field, there may still be time to alert the authors/editors and have them amend the manuscript to make the name available, since it is still only a preprint.
To which can be added:
If the preprint cannot be further modified for some reason, and the existence of this nomen nudum is a (potential) problem in the field, then the authors should be encouraged to make the name available as soon as possible, before attaching further scientific data to a name that may be replaced in the future.

Cheers,
