Super taxon Reference
Taxon synonym Reference The administration of synonyms is separated from their use, i.e. only names are documented. Afterwards, a connection of names is made, where 'A-Taxon is the valid (may be the name used by Edaphobase), B-Taxon is the the non-valid/ non-used name. Thus, a source can connect with a list of taxa that use different names.
AuthorTextName of the first description's author (is empty for non-available names; see "name appendix").
Year TextYear of the first description (is empty for non-available names; see "name appendix").
Parentheses Yes/No If the species epitheton is combined with another genus name, the describing author's name and year of the first description are included in parentheses.

If the name is used in an altered way by subsequent author(s) or if the name is not applicable by subsequent author(s): "sensu Mustermann, 1912", "s. l.", "auct.", "grp.", "nomen dubium". 2. If the name is not available: "author" and "year" remain empty and "name appendix" has to be filled out with "nom. nud. [author year]" 1.
