Dear Rico, Dear all,
well, thats very true. The authors are careless about proper use of the nomenclature rules in the sense of the ICZN. Although it seems that they like to treat some clade names in sense of the PhyloCode, I think it is not a good idea to write the unavailable group name ''Stiassnia'' in italic
Concerning the ''flagrant mistake'' about Julidochromis
. Since, the type species of Julidochromis
and of Chalinochromis
are very close related (even sister taxa in Fig 2 and Fig 3) the correct taxonomic conclusion is that both genera are synonyms. Thus, the valid group name for that cluster is Julidochromis

As with Central American cichlids, the question arises, how many of them are yet to be published before any sort of tangible result is achieved? And why in the world are such papers usually published first as half-finished 'accepted manuscript' versions?
Without any doubt, it will not be the last ''phylogenetic'' analysis for this kinds of cichlids.
