Sorry for the previous posting. The following solves  (to some extent my 



fHierarchy[10], gives the structure for 10 elements, and so on.

However, I do not like this solution since to my taste is to complex and 
rather inelegant. Nest or Fold  would do better. Any Idea?

Just an additional remark.

Besides, I do not need the whole taxonomy, but a subset satisfying a 
minimizing condition on connectivity implied by some relationships among 
the elements. This condition is satisfied by one and only one element, or 
class of equivalence in each level of the hierarchy. So it is that very 
class which matter and consequently the procedure should give control on 
each class as the total structure is being generated. Once it is know which 
class satisfy the condition it is possible to avoid generating the whole 
structure and the subsequent combinatorial explosion. With just 
fHierarchy[100]  a Dell Latitude, 1 GH, 256 MB RAM runs out of memory.
