Biacumontia Staręga, 1992 is a genus of Triaenonychinae with 7 species, from South Africa.

AuthorshipEdit

Lawrence (1931)[1] 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)[2] 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.[3].
