Usage notesEdit

  • The suffix is codified by the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants in Article H.6. The code specifies that such names must be used when the nothogenus is derived from at least four genera, and may be used when derived from three. The code also specifies that such names should not exceed eight syllables, and must be appended to the name of a person, which, according to the code, "should preferably be a collector, grower, or student of the group."
