 from a=20
preexisting genus name or is a new or converted name derived from the=
of a genus name, the definition of the clade name must use the type s=
of that genus name at the time of establishment as an internal specif=

Why not "must use the type species of that genus name at the time of=
establishment, or the type specimen(s) of that species at the same ti=
