Dears annelidians
after a long discussion about the Arwidsson thesis and publication,  
may I suggest a possible practical, operational solution that is to  
use the double dates! 1906-1907...
I have seen this use in case of Journals that have jumped one year or  
that have melted two years in one, so the publication is with a double  
dates, I have personally a paper which is published in Oebalia  
so I know that it is not orthodox, but it should be used the case of  
However as for the species auhtority I don't know if the double dates  
would be accepted by the code...
Sorry to be naive...
the best to all of you,
Maria Cristina (or Cristina Maria...it does not changes here I am)
