1 March 2014 Corrigendum to The Taxon Filter, a novel mechanism designed to facilitate the relationship between taxonomy and nomenclature, vis-à-vis the utility of the Code's Article 81 (the Commission's plenary power)
Abstract

The text in BZN 70(4), p. 300 says: ‘In herpetology, we have reached the point when the scientific community has formally and nearly unanimously rejected the use of names coined by Raymond Hoser since the year 2000. Given that these names have appeared in a single outlet and their production has followed the same pattern that makes them unacceptable to herpetologists, such names could be rendered void for the purposes of nomenclature if the Commission used its plenary power (Article 81) to declare all names proposed in Hoser's AJH unavailable.’

Since the publication of BZN 70(4), R. Hoser has contacted the Secretariat with a statement correcting the information provided by H. Kaiser, which says: ‘Since 1998, I have published scientific papers of a taxonomic nature, naming species or genera in no less than seven different peer reviewed and other journals (namely Boydii, Crocodilian, Monitor, Macarthur Herpetological Society News, Litteratura Serpentium, Ophidia Review and Australasian Journal of Herpetology) proposing new names and combinations for unnamed species and groups.’
