Establishing the availability of the mammalian genus name Antillomys and species name Antillomys rayi (Rodentia, Cricetidae)
Brace S., Turvey ST., Weksler M., Hoogland MLP., Barnes I.
The rodent genus name Antillomys and the species name Antillomys rayi (Cricetidae: Sigmodontinae) are unavailable, given that the publication where they originally appear did not satisfy the requirements of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN). The names were formally described in the supplementary information (electronic online text) in Word format, and the work itself did not contain evidence that it was registered in ZooBank, as per Article 8.5.3 (amended) of the ICZN. In this note we establish the availability of the names Antillomys and Antillomys rayi, by fulfilling ICZN’s requirements.
