Usage

This template is one of a number intended for use in taxoboxes under the |subdivision= or |synonyms= parameters, to produce a list of taxa in a consistent format.

Use like this:

{{Species list
| Spexia speciosa | Authority, 2003
| †Spexia additiona | Others ''et al''., 2002
| Spexia typa | Describer, 1888 (type)
| Spexia dubia |
| Specia dubia ''subsp.'' maxima |
}}

Both the taxon name and authority will be automatically formatted to produce:

  • Spexia speciosa Authority, 2003
  • Spexia additiona Others et al., 2002
  • Spexia typa Describer, 1888 (type)
  • Spexia dubia
  • Specia dubia subsp. maxima

Note that if the authority is not known, the "|" must still be present after the taxon name.

If a "connecting term" is present in a botanical name, such as "subsp.", "var." or "f.", then this should not be italicized. Put '' either side of the connecting term to de-italicize it.

Mark incomplete lists using |incomplete=yes, which will add "(incomplete)" to the end of the list.

Variations

To automatically link the content of every taxon name, use {{Linked species list}}. To bold-face the species (e.g. if they will never have their own pages, when listed in a genus article) use {{Bold species list}}.

For example:

{{Linked species list
| Spexia speciosa | Authority, 2003
| †Spexia additiona | Others ''et al''., 2002
| Spexia typa | Describer, 1888 (type)
| Spexia dubia {{!}} S. dubia | <!--creates a piped link-->
}}

produces

Each of the three "species list" templates has a "genus list" alias.

Extinct taxa

The name of an extinct taxon can be preceded by one of the following markers: † &dagger; {{extinct}}. Any of them will appear as † in the output. The † will not be italicized and will not be included in a wikilink.

See also

  • {{Taxon list}} – creates a list for taxon names which should not be italicized, i.e. taxa at ranks higher than genus
  • {{Linked taxon list}} – as {{Taxon list}} but the taxon names are wikilinked
