  • Mode of hypotaxy of a taxon that includes no subordinate taxon, being the ‘‘terminal’’ lower taxon in a nomenclatural hierarchy. Given the current Rules of the Code, this can occur only in two cases, when the ‘‘final’’ taxon is either a species or a subspecies. All nomina at ranks above the rank species designate taxa that include at least one species, even possibly still unnamed and undescribed, so they cannot fall in this category of hypotaxy. (Dubois & Raffaëlli 2009)
