Searching genera - things to know
- You can search for all genus-group names, including taxonomically invalid and nomenclaturally unavailable names.
- Each genus-group name is listed together with its 'original spelling' to highlight whether or not subsequent changes have occurred in accordance with the rules of zoological nomenclature.
- The grammatical gender is given for each genus-group name to help forming declinable species-group names (i.e. adjectival names, or participles in the nominative singular) in agreement with the gender of a genus name with which they are at any time combined.
