Journals or publishers are removed from the list for different reasons, including name changes. Each case is different.
To answer your second question, yes, if the publisher is listed, this listing applies to all of the journals it publishes.
Things like this have always been there in taxonomy, no need for OA (although that certainly makes it easier). As long as a new name is published somewhere, even a stenciled “journal” sent to a few libraries, it’s published “validly”. People used to self-publish books and fill them with descriptions of new species, varieties, subfamilies and what not, leaving it to the professionals to clean up their mess. Not surprisingly, this kind of stuff usually occurs with plant groups that are popular (like orchids and cacti), although more obscure plant groups are not safe from these practices either. One note though. Molinari did not name any of these groupings after himself. A plant (sub)family name consists of one word, like “Peltantheraceae” above. It is then standard practice to append the “authority name” (i.e., the name of the first author describing the taxon), it’s a kind of bibliographic reference. For example, Poa annua L.: the species name is “Poa annua” and it was first described by Linné, but the “L.” is a bibliographic reference, not part of the name.
Of course, none of this changes anything about this journal polluting taxonomy.

The publisher “iamure” that @Efren asks about is already discussed on this page.
Great work, @Jeffrey Beall.
Kudos on the way you handle the appeals posted to this page, off topic posts, and for your work in general. I second what @Henrik Eger says above.
Hats off to you, sir!
I have this journal included on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/individual-journals/" target="_blank">here</a>. I recommend that researchers not submit any papers to this journal.
Regarding the Emerging Sources Citation Index, I recommend that researchers NOT use this database as a white list. It if full of predatory and low-quality journals.
Yes, I think it's the same journal, for the ISSN matches. Good luck.
Dear Bill sir,
Just want confirmed about this publishers even though it takes them time to review manuscript for publication and returned to the authors for correction. Journal of Education Policy and Entrepreneurial Research (JEPER). Publishers http://www.ztjournals.com
Your prompt response will be highly appreciated. Thank you
I am not commenting about this specific topic. I want to share some of my thoughts. Recently I found myself come to this website at least once or twice a week to check if the journals that invite me to submit articles or serve on their editorial boards are on the list. Sadly all of them are. I wonder why this happens so often these days and whether they only send out invitations to a certain group of researchers or they just sent to anybody in research. Thanks for any thoughts..
Is Iranian Journal of Fisheries Sciences a predator journal ?
It’s complete rubbish. I am adding it to my list.
No, not at this time.
I believe we all receive plenty of these invitations. As soon as your name and address appear on some research-related site, be it a database of published papers or merely an institutional website, it will be found by data-miners. I hear there are companies selling huge lists of addresses found on the internet, more or less well sorted according to people’s speciality.
The main point is that if a journal sends you an invitation to publish with them, it is probably not worth doing so – except in those rare cases where a fellow scientist whom you know specifically asks you to write some kind of review.

Dear Jeffrey Beall
Would you please give me more information about conferenceseries.com?
Recently I took an invitation from them for participating in Specialists Meeting on Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders” Conference. I sent an article. One week later, I receive the acceptance from them as oral presentation. Their website offer to publish article after congress in OMICS publisher.
Do you have any information about this conferences? Is it a real ENT CONFERENCE?
<strong><em>conferenceseries.com</em></strong> is the conference organizing arm of the predatory publisher OMICS International.
I strongly recommend that all researchers not register for any of this company's conferences. Numerous reports show that it is a completely bogus effort, designed only to get as much money from researchers while providing as little as possible in the way of quality conference organization. OMICS International organizes and sponsors anti-conferences. Don't waste your time or money on them. Seek out conferences from an authentic scholarly society.
Avoid OMICS like the plague. If you mistakenly submit a paper to OMICS when you try to withdraw it they immediately accept the paper and then demand payment (about $1000). After months of arguing I finally got rid of them by offering to pay a withdrawl “fee” of about $300. I had to to do so I could publish the paper in a respectable journal. I could not submit it anywhere else until I had gotten rid of them. Check all journals on Beall’s List and be careful about stolen journal names. Do not submit papers to them and of course refuse to act as a editorial board member or a referee.
Correct, its publisher, Eurasian Publications is on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">here</a>.
