"Art. 32.5 Spellings that must be corrected (incorrect original spellings)."
This does not seem to list any subject that includes incorrect gender
formation. Incorrect gender is apparently only required on changing during rank
changes (Art. 35). Agreement in gender should be reconciled before publication
and during proof. If it is published, it is retained, even if it is not in
agreement in gender. However, in Art 32.5, we have the following:
"32.5.1. If there is in the original publication itself, without recourse to
any external source of information, clear evidence of an inadvertent error,
such as a lapsus calami or a copyist's or printer's error, it must be
corrected. Incorrect transliteration or latinization, or use of an
inappropriate connecting vowel, are not to be considered inadvertent errors."
Use of a diacritic, apostraphe, or hyphen:
"32.5.2. A name published with a diacritic or other mark, ligature,
apostrophe, or hyphen, or a species-group name published as separate words of
which any is an abbreviation, is to be corrected."
Neither of these subarticles refer to a required change utilizing gender.
