Abstract

Ohler & Dubois (2018) argued that Article 23.9 of the Code cannot be used to reject the name HylaquoyiBory de Saint-Vincent, 1828 in favor of its junior synonym Hyla prasinaBurmeister, 1856. However, their statement was based on an insufficient literature search erroneously suggesting that H. prasina had been rarely used. We discuss this issue and give recommendations on searches in electronic bibliographical databases.
