Re: Monotypic genera and the PhyloCode

I think many people would agree with the idea that a name that traditionally refers to a species should be used for a species, and a name that has traditionally NOT been used for a species should NOT be used for a species. Regardless of how much easier it is to remember one or the other, swapping names between two different categories of taxa (clades and populations) is a pretty bad idea.
