Schodde & Bock (2016) put forward their interpretation of Art. 31.2.2 of ICZN (1999) taking selected cases from Aves, and contended that five names, of 27 examined, may require correcting. The authors offered their conclusion that the requirement for gender agreement in species-group names is the single biggest cause of nomenclatural instability in zoology, and, to resolve it, they advocated replacing gender agreement by original spellings for species-group names. Here, we wish to offer some…

Interpreting Article 31.2.2 of the Code, Tanagra bresilia Linnaeus, and gender agreement—a response to Dickinson et al. (2017) towards more positive outcomes
TLDR
Conflation is the argument of false analogy; and here it is explained how Dickinson et al. (2017) use it to mistake the meaning of Art. 31.2.2, misjudge the noun / adjective status of Tanagra bresilia Linnaeus, and misrepresent the impact of gender agreement on species names.
Bacterial Nomenclature in the Era of Genomics
TLDR
A fresh look at bacterial nomenclature is taken, exploring how to create a system fit for the age of genomics, playing to the strengths of current practice, while minimising difficulties.

Conflict resolution of grammar and gender for avian species-group names under Article 31.2.2 of the ICZN Code: is gender agreement worth it?
TLDR
It is concluded that the requirement for gender agreement in species-group names is the single biggest cause of nomenclatural instability in zoology and support replacing gender agreement by original spellings for species- group names is supported.
Gender agreement of avian species-group names under Article 31.2.2 of the ICZN Code
—The present article examines the nature of several species-group names that are grammatically nouns as well as adjectives, as covered by Art. 31.2.2 of the ICZN (1999) Code. We looked at 139 avian
Case 3630 corcoracidae Mathews, 1927 (Aves) and the spelling melanorhamphos Vieillot, 1817 for the valid name of the type species of its type genus: proposed conservation of usage
TLDR
The purpose of this application is to conserve the family name corcoracidae Mathews, 1927 for the Australian bird family known as mudnesters and conserve melanorhamphos Vieillot, 1817 as the correct spelling of the valid name for the type species of the type genus of corCoracidae.
