The terminology used by the authors is in line with many other taxonomic studies and does not negatively affect their main results; some improvements may nevertheless be possible. The usage of the term "coherent taxon" (or equivalent) is cautioned against. Whether taxa can have "members" is debatable. See the LPSN phylogeny page for details.Publication:
