    • What on earth does that mean? The feminine gender is correct. —innotata 19:29, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
      • The agreement is fair, but the practice is that does not change a name for misspelling or agreement after it had been published. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:38, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
        • I have no idea what that's supposed to mean. If you're talking about emendations, I don't think gender corrections are such, and you haven't provided a source contradicting David and Gosselin. —innotata 14:10, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
          • I am ashamed of my bad English. This is common sense that should guide us. If a species is described with a city name or region and that this name change, it should rename this species? If a species name includes a proper name with a misspelling, after publishing this fault is not corrected. He even admitted that the species name can be capitalized if the name is derived from a proper name, and as the original publication have written with this capital. There is no consensus on these issues nor international or even in a country like France. The rule is most logical to try to meet the spelling of the publication reference. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 14:52, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
            • Yes, you're thinking of unjustified emendations. But corrections of gender are not such ICZN 31.2 French PDF of entire code. There's no space for disagreement. —innotata 19:48, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
