Btw, is it considered more prestigious for an ornithologist to have described a new species, or to have a new species named in his/her honour...?

The taxon described by López-Lánus was named in honor of two brothers (Adrián and Alejandro Di Giacomo). Therefore, isn't the epithet digiacomoorum (!), not digiacomoi?

Some people don't think so.

I have been hearing quite a bit of discussion amongst biologists and paleontologists about trying to move more journals to a "pre-print model", as a solution to the problem of increasing amounts of time to get things from submitted to published. This model is widely used in other sciences such as physics IIRC, and I wonder what expanding that that model might do long run to current ideas about date of description, etc.

HBW Alive...
A new species of Sporophila seedeater (Emberizidae) from the Iberá Wetlands, Corrientes, NE Argentina, has been described. Its description was published independently by two separate sets of authors. One of the publications, by Bernabé López-Lanús, named the species Sporophila digiacomoi. The other team of authors, Adrián Di Giacomo and Cecilia Kopuchian, named the species Sporophila iberaensis. Both descriptions proposed the English name Ibera Seedeater. It should be mentioned that the latter team of authors registered their description with the Official Registry of Zoological Nomenclature, and they have a paper in preparation to be published in The Auk.

"This is a preprint / prepublication version of a manuscript. BioRxiv is intended to facilitate communication among scientists about scientific findings before formal publication in a peer-reviewed journal. It may take a year before a paper is peer-reviewed, revised and published. Peer-review is usually performed by only 2-3 peers (who may overlook problems or miss opportunities for improvement). Prepublication has the advantages that it speeds up the release of new findings to the scientific community (and thus improves progress), and by seeking feedback from that community, it may improve the quality of the final publication. http://amapress.gen.cam.ac.uk/?p=1316 .
When the paper is formally published elsewhere, a link will appear on BioRxiv directing you to that publication. It is unlikely you'll find any new descriptions of zoological taxa on BioRxiv because this is not a journal, and has no ISSN."

Somewhat intriguingly, isbn.org.ar seems to treat the printed work as having been published in Dec 2015:
ISBN: 978-987-33-9633-5
Título: Guía Audiornis de las aves de Argentina, fotos y sonidos
Razón Social: López Lanús, Bernabé Máximo
Sello Editor: Bernabé Máximo López Lanús
Autor/es: López Lanús, Bernabé Máximo;
Fecha Publicación: 12/2015
Idioma: Español /
Edición: 1
Encuadernación: Encuadernación en tapa dura o cartoné
Soporte: Libro
Tamaño: 22 x 15
Páginas: 550
Público: Interes General - Público Adulto
Disponibilidad: Pedido especial
Material Complementario: Artículos escolares /
...but obtainable by "pedido especial" (special order) -- thus presumably not through standard booksellers?
I've no idea what this proves, though. (Obviously, as ISBN numbers are printed in books nowadays, the numbers are obtained by publishers ahead of print. Note that the number of pages in the book reported above (550) departs from what is declared in the pdf separate (522). But still, I did not expect to find a book that is effectively unpublished in an online ISBN database...)
