Subject: Use of 'sic'    Hi All,    If I'm citing from a publication in which a nominal subgenus or nominal subspecies is spelled wrong, how do you suggest I proceed with the term "[sic]"? Only after the first error, only after the last error, or after each error?    a)Oxystermom[sic] (Oxystermom) festixum  [sic] festixum    b)Oxystermom(Oxystermom) [sic] festixum festixum[sic]    c)Oxystermom[sic](Oxystermom) [sic] festixum[sic] festixum[sic]    I have not encountered names in which both genus and species were spelled wrong, the above is just an example I made up. Option c) appears the best to me, but it looks kind of funny when both name and "[sic]" are repeated.    Thanks you in advance,    Auke
