The recent detailed and extensively documented review of taxonomic inflation, by Padial and De la Riva (2006) (doi:10.1080/1063515060081588), of necessity omitted two additional causes for the promotion of subspecies to species. Both causes are almost secret and of both I am only aware through personal involvement with taxonomy and, especially, taxonomists. For both it would be very difficult to collect quantitative data on the frequency of occurrence.
The December 2006 issue is online at informaworld, not the old Taylor and Francis web site.
