Taxon search

  • This searches for taxon names as used on the site.
  • The "Search Term" only needs to be a fragment of the name - eg "pseudoumb" will match pseudoumbilicus
  • If you use full names then similar-sounding names will be returned (soundex search), this corrects for typos but occasionally produces strange results.
  • Searching is not case-sensitive
  • Alternate gender endings are searched (e.g magnus, magnum, magna)
  • If you use the searchbox on a taxon page then you will come to this page UNLESS there is only one result for your search in the module you are using (excluding synonyms).
  • Advanced search provides many extra ways to search.
