Rotifer LAN

  • Announcement:
Rotifer taxonomists, representing the community of rotifer scientists, have proposed, for species group-level taxa in the phylum Rotifera, a candidate Part of the List of Available Names in Zoology (LAN) (see Article 79 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature). Comments from zoologists have been invited during twelve months of public viewing by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, through the Commission's web site at www.iczn.org. This public review period ended on 31 March 2013, and in April 2014 the Commission's ad hoc committee informed the rotifer expert committee that they have recommended considering a revised proposal.

The second period of public commentary on this revised proposal of species-group level names began on 20 December 2015 and will end on 19 December 2016.

The revised proposal can be downloaded here.

This rotifer expert committee was endorsed at subsequent Rotifer Symposia (Shillong, India, November 2012; Ceske Budejovice, Czechia, August 2015) to also propose a candidate Part of the List of Available Names in Zoology (LAN) for genus group-level taxa in the phylum Rotifera.

The first period of public commentary on this proposal of genus-group level names began on 20 December 2015 and will end on 19 December 2016.

The proposal can be downloaded here.
