Extreme example: several binomina from the late 1990s and/or early 2000s were
erected not as "new genus & species" but just as "new taxon". (Isn't
<i>Rahonavis</i> one of those non-genera?) As far as the ICZN is concerned,
that makes them utterly and totally invalid. Nobody seems to care, hardly
anybody seems to so much as notice.
