Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 78.2.3 and 80.2.1 of the Code, is to confirm the availability of the nominal species Tapirus pygmaeus Van Roosmalen & Van Hooft in Van Roosmalen 2013 [22 April] for the black dwarf tapir, thus also confirming its priority over the subjective synonym Tapirus kabomani Cozzuol et al., 2013 [December], by ruling that Van Roosmalen's edited book Barefoot through the Amazon — On the path of evolution, in which T. pygmaeus was proposed, is not unavailable solely on account of its being advertised as a print-on-demand work, but is an original multiple-copy, simultaneously available edition. It is shown that Van Roosmalen & Van Hooft's publication contained information sufficient to satisfy the criteria of availability under Articles 10 to 20 of the Code.
