    I know this is unlikely to get a response two years after the original post, however…
    Daniel, if what you assume is true about the retention of the name Grossulariaceae, how does that jive with the change of Compositae to Asteraceae?

  2. Daniel Mosquin

    The answer to that is in section 18.5 of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (Vienna – 2006):
    The following names, of long usage, are treated as validly published: Compositae (Asteraceae; type, Aster L.); ”.
    Grossulariaceae is retained under the rules of section 18.3.
