Talpa aquitania sp. nov. (Talpidae, Soricomorpha), a new mole species from SW France and N Spain

Abstract : We recently published the diagnosis and the name of a new mammal species: Talpa aquitania Nicolas, Martínez-Vargas et Hugot 2015. Unfortunately, it happened that the editors of the Bulletin de l’Académie Vétérinaire de France, the selected journal, decided to stop the paper edition for their publication. An attentive examination of the corresponding articles of the International Code on Zoological Nomenclature (Art. 8) shows that, to be valid, a new name must be published on a paper support or electronically after being pre-registered in the Official Register of Zoological Nomenclature (ZooBank) before publication. Thus, in this situation we have a risk that our work will not be considered published, and therefore our new taxon considered not available. This is the reason why we publish the present article in a periodical printed on paper, distributed simultaneously to all subscribers and accessible online after its paper distribution, which makes our new name available under the traditional rules of zoological nomenclature. In the following we are giving the essentials of the diagnosis of the new taxon.
