Odd Zootaxa RSS

I have just checked the RSS feed for Phasmatodea on Zootaxa. Curiously it lists this paper: 'A taxonomic revision of the weevil genus Picia Tournier, 1895 (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea: Erirhinidae)' I have searched through the paper for mentions of Phamsatodea (and Phasmida, stick insect, Cheleutoptera, etc) and found nothing.

Seems to be a case of user error at the Zootaxa end - not particularly helpful.

Nope, it in my google reader too. I tweeted it to rod page, who I think created the RSS feed for zootaxa

Yes, Rod created it - I'm not sure how he does it - I assume that the order would be assigned automatically somehow?
