Thanks, Viktor, for letting us know of this new publication.

Having looked at the online version, however, it seems to me that the paper and the new scientific taxon names it proposes have not been registered with ZooBank ( prior to the online publication. Therefore, according to the recently modified ICZN regulations concerning electronic publication, the new scientific taxon names will only become nomenclaturally available when the print version of the paper is published.

[16 June 2015] The paper hasn't appeared in print; hence, new names in it still are unavailable.
