Biacumontia variegata Lawrence, 1934 (from original description)
Lawrence (1931) originally included two species in Biacumontia, but did not choose any of them as a type. The generic name was then unavailable because failed to comply with ICZN 13.3 (see below). Staręga’s (1992) action of choosing one of them as the type first made Biacumontia available because this complied with 13.1.2 and 13.3. Relevant provisions from ICZN article 13 are: To be available, every new genus-group name published after 1930 must (13.1.1) be accompanied by a description or definition OR (13.1.2) be accompanied by a bibliographic reference to such a published statement AND (13.3) be accompanied by the fixation of a type species in the original publication. As Staręga’s name is published before 2000, it does not have to meet the article (16.1): Every new name published after 1999 must be explicitly indicated as intentionally new..
