I for one still write a diagnosis in Latin. It is a valuable activity,
because often it causes one to focus and re-evaluate the new taxon's
distinct characteristics during the translation process.  Like in poetry,
the words in a Latin diagnosis must be meaningful, clear and succinct.  I
enjoy the important thought process that is provoked.
