Subject: autonymous affixes

David Marjanovic asked:

>name formed by the addition of an affix?

A proposal concerning autonymous affixes (e.g., Pan-) will be brought=
to the Committee on Phylogenetic Nomenclature.  Although the CPN will=
be formed as soon as the election is completed, it may be late spring=
before Kevin and I bring the issue forward because he will be doing=
fieldwork in Mexico for three months.
