Subject: species names

Jacques Gauthier has also made this point to me several times in conversati=
ons.  It is definitely something we should consider when preparing the =
species part of the PhyloCode.

For species, I support method M, but I think that in monotypic genera the
genus name rather than the specific epithet should become the species =
because it is usually much more distinct.
