Abstract

The Judicial Commission has ruled that subgenus names within the genus should be considered to have been included on the Approved Lists, together with the corresponding species names within these subgenera. Closer examination of the facts, including the wording of the relevant passages in the Code and the original publication in which these names are included, together with information that has subsequently come to light, indicates that there is good cause to re-examine the facts on which this Opinion is based.
