In Reply to: Taxonomy is a matter of evidence... posted by WW on October 15, 2002 at 14:22:54:

i don't have a problem with accepting a name change based on evidence that is solid, but i do have a problem with the idea put forth by the "list makers" that we are required to go with the most recently published name, for no other reason than because it is the most recently published name.

in other words, just because Collins, et. al., think that some grad student's work is sufficient to warrant accepting a name change doesn't mean that the rest of us ought to go along if we think that the evidence doesn't warrant such a name change.

later
