This is analogous to zoology's available name. Validly published name_sentence_0

Not to be confused with zoology's valid name. Validly published name_sentence_1

In botanical nomenclature, a validly published name is a name that meets the requirements in the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants for valid publication. Validly published name_sentence_2

Valid publication of a name represents the minimum requirements for a botanical name to exist: terms that appear to be names but have not been validly published are referred to in the ICN as "designations". Validly published name_sentence_3

A validly published name may not satisfy all the requirements to be legitimate. Validly published name_sentence_4

It is also not necessarily the correct name for a particular taxon and rank. Validly published name_sentence_5

Nevertheless, invalid names (nomen invalidum, nom. Validly published name_sentence_6

inval.) Validly published name_sentence_7

are sometimes in use. Validly published name_sentence_8

This may occur when a taxonomist finds and recognises a taxon and thinks of a name, but delays publishing it in an adequate manner. Validly published name_sentence_9

A common reason for this is that a taxonomist intends to write a magnum opus that provides an overview of the group, rather than a series of small papers. Validly published name_sentence_10

Another reason is that the code of nomenclature changes with time, and most changes have retroactive effect, which has resulted in some names that the author thought were validly published, becoming invalid. Validly published name_sentence_11

Contrast to zoology Validly published name_section_0

In zoology, the term "valid name" has a different meaning, analogous to (corresponding to) the botanical term "correct name". Validly published name_sentence_12

The term "validly published name" is more like (and it corresponds to) the zoological term "available name". Validly published name_sentence_13
