Sadly, politically correctness on the part of certain institutions allows this madness to pass as valid publication.  Actually, Adriana Hoffman managed to get into the herbarium once, as did David Brundell.  Both reported that the material (including specimens on loan from various herbaria for decades) was in hideous condition.  I tried to get an amendment to the botanical code passed in 1984 that would prevent this sort of megalomania and it was shot down.
