To constitute publication of a species name, it is required that it shall be accompanied by a description or by a citation of a description. To constitute publication of a genus name, it is required in addition that it shall be associated with a species whose name is published at the same or at an earlier time. A writer who uses a new name without complying with the technical requirements of publication is said to propose the name. A subsequent writer may adopt such a name by citing it and completing its publication.
