Of course, as an Abstract, this would not qualify as a valid mode of
publishing a new name, under ICZN rules. (I don't mean to imply that HP
Harris was suggesting this.)
"Nessov & Borkin (1989)" is the ref usually cited as the publication that
officially named _Arambourgiania_ as the replacement name for _Titanopteryx_
Arambourg. I think this was the same publication in which another new
pterosaur genus name, _Bogolubovia_, was proposed (for _Ornithostoma
Curiously, the "Nomenclator Zoologicus" database includes neither
_Arambourgiania_ or _Bogolubovia_. Here, as elsewhere, locating the late
Lev Nessov's publications is complicated by the fact that his name is
translated into English as either 'Nesov' or 'Nessov'.
For those interested, the original _Titanopteryx_ (Enderlein, 1935) is a
blackfly (=_Simulium). Not really so "titanic".
I don't know if this helped at all.
