      Description

      Nomenclators like IPNI provide a list of nomenclatural or replaced synonyms for a given name, but not always the true basionym for these names. As they do not select one of these names as the preferred, accepted one we lose this information because of 2 main issues:

      1) dwc only allows to declare an accepted ID, but not to relate a name to a nomenclatural/homotypic group so there is no notion of accepting a name

      2) CLB does not store this neither. We would need to resurrect the homotypic group table. Neo graphs could be useful for determining all related homotypic names
