  Re: Dracunculus species NOT to get

Something tells me, Eduardo, that eventually the taxonomists will get around
to grouping things within Bacteria, Eukarya and Archaea, and at a minimum
keep names unique within each of these three groups. Why should Archaea and
Bacteria be grouped together in terms of forbidding duplication of names,
whereas within Eucarya plants and animals can have duplicate genera?

Maybe I'm wrong (and this is probably a discussion that wouldn't belong on
this list).
