Jonesia Rocourt and Stackebrandt 1987 is a later homonym of a genus name with standing in the botanical (plant) nomenclature: Jonesia Roxb. 1795. Principle 2 of the 2008 Code is not retroactive, so the name does not contravene the Code because of this homonymy. — Crook M. Personal communication, 2021-08-19.
