En el International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology (2007), 57, 1164-1166, hay un artículo en el que Hans G. Trüper, del Institut für Mikrobiologie and Biotechnologie, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelm-Universität, cuenta cómo en un Congreso de la Sociedad Internacional de Estudios Neolatinos (IANLS) solicitó de los presentes una pequeña ayudita:

The number of microbiologists who have sufficient knowledge of Latin to form correct Latin names for newly isolates micro-organisms appears to decrease steadily. Therefore, I contacted de International Association of Neo-Latinist Studies (IANLS) before their XIIIth International Congress in Budapest 2006 and asked their secretary, Professor Dr Marianne Pade, to inquire whether there were members of this association who would be interested and willing to help microbiologists in the formation of Latin/Neo-Latin genus names and specific epithets for newly found prokaryotes that are ready to be properly described following the Rules of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (formerly: of Bacteria), ICNP. The results of this approach were very positive and you will find a list of nineteen names and addresses below.

A ver si va a resultar que sí tenemos utilidades, aparte de estudiar momias y descifrar jeroglíficos, como algún ilustre rebuznador a sueldo escribe
