    The interpretation of article 46.2 of International Code of Nomenclature by Poplin & Dressler (2011, 2nd para p.168) seems to make sense to me even though I don't have complete understanding of nomenclature rules. I asked about this in his Facebook group, and Guido said that it doesn't apply because the "manuscript" by Warszewicz doesn't exists. I don't know if the letter (a form of manuscript) is required to exist by IAPT. I'm guessing that in some species named long time ago, there are cases where the original article or letter describing the species didn't survive.
