Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This name appears to cover the exact taxon content as the previously named Democlavia. Although higher taxa names are 'free' to propose it is customary to maintain names if the content has not been changed. The argument of Cardenas et al. 2012, that there was no formal definition of the group, seems thin and is also not a requirement for proposing a taxon name above the family level, as long as the content / intent is clear. [details]
