Re: Platecarpus tympaniticus - how to analyze a nomen dubium

 comment. But PhyloCode will STILL turn into a free-for-all contest
 to see who can get their name(s) attached to the most clade names,
 which is unproductive.

I suppose that's one reason why Art. 4.2 of the PhyloCode _requires_ peer review for the valid publication of any nomenclatural act.

It is further likely that referees will take such things as Rec. 9B into account.

 TaxonSearch: great idea in concept, really poor in execution.

What has TaxonSearch got to do with the PhyloCode? It's Sereno's alternative to the PhyloCode.
