Hi Stephen, thanks for your input. In this case I am wanting to know if I
can use names erected in that publication as validly published (now), or
need to wait until the article appears in the paginated / non "Early view"
version of the journal, before including them in a dataset to be harvested
by Catalogue of Life for its 2021 annual edition. If the consensus is that
they are not validly published as at now, they will have to wait for
another year to pass if not included at this time. - that's all...

Cheers - Tony
