See Wikispecies:Village Pump#Name order confusion. It's not currently clear which of her names she should be cited as in articles, which is why I didn't make this page sooner. Monster Iestyn (talk) 16:35, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Much later thoughts: Seeing as some of her non-taxonomic articles on ResearchGate give her name as "K. Viswajyothi", it is possible that she is from one of the Indian cultures that abbreviate family/village names rather than personal names, judging from en:Indian name. It's impossible for me to speculate exactly which culture she is from, but it seems very possible to me that Viswajyothi prefers to be known by her personal name. This would explain why "Viswajyothi" is used as an abbreviation of her name as a taxon authority. Monster Iestyn (talk) 04:15, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
