This will search valid names, common names, alternative combinations, excluded species and synonyms. It attemtps to find exact matches, but allows some flexibility to accommodate subgenera, suffixes and different gender endings.
You can use the '%' character as a wild card to match any number of characters in your search.
Here are some examples:
- Psylloidea will match Psylloidea exactly.
- Psyll% will also match the name Psylloidea and anything else starting with Psyll.
- %fraxini would match the epithet 'fraxini', part of the valid name binomial Psyllopsis fraxini.
To match a species epithet only, you need to provide a wild card to match the other parts of the binomial or trinomial.
If you can't find what you're looking for, the Advanced Search page has some more search options.
