Re: Taxa nomy?
Sorry, it is WRONG. I repeat the relevant part of ICZN Art. 1.2.2.:
"... Articles 1-4, 7-10,11.1-11.3, 14, 27, 28, and 126.96.36.199 also regulate
names of taxa at ranks above the family group."
That is: ALL taxon names at ANY rank (or category) below Animalia and
above family group taxon names ARE ALSO regulated by the ICZN Code.
