Names redone

Animal names are now given in a consistent order: Latin name [English name, Swedish name]. The Latin name is written as a full scientific name, complete with author and year of description.

The presentation isn’t perfect, though: The standard ICZN specifies a very specific use of italics, different parenthesises and commas – but so does the underlying database of this web-site. To avoid conflicts, dots are used instead of commas and to express a change in emphasis.

All scientific names ar revised, and made up to date, according to the World Register of Marine Species, available from at VLIZ.
