Complex synonyms


The table below shows cases where more than one designated taxa have been amalgamated either by taxonomic revision or by a systematic naming process into one single recommended current name on the NBN UK Species Inventory.

This list could prove useful for answering questions such as "Why is species x no longer on the Master List?". The user should attempt to find the species name in the column "Name as originally designated" in order to obtain the "Recommended taxon name".

Note that straightforward synonyms (for example, those not involving amalgamations of names) are shown on the sheet "Master List" by the inclusion of an entry in the "Designated name" column.
