Use this page to edit your taxon. You may save as often as necessary, and share the url for this page with co-authors. Once complete, check the Done checkbox and save. Taxa checked as Done will be marked with a tick in the Taxonomy section of your paper in the paper editor. Note that there is no auto-save: you should save frequently while editing online.

For convenience, the following autocorrections will be made after you leave a field: -- => en-dash; --- => em-dash; +/- => ±; ^o => °; /x/ → times symbol.

Images v

Taxon image uploads and captions

Your paper may have up to five taxon images (i.e. figures, plates or illustrations that relate to this taxon; see the images panel in the paper editor for images that relate to the paper as a whole).

 

If you need more, consider using collages.

Upload and caption your images using the buttons and text boxes below.

Important: read this before attaching images

To lay out properly, all images must be at least 950 pixels wide. If you want an image to be narrower than this, you must pad it to 950 pixels wide using whitespace. Images that are less than 950 pixels wide will be stretched to that width, reducing their quality.

An image with an aspect ratio of 1:1.46 (that is, 1.46 times higher than wide) will fill the printable area of the page, not accounting for the caption. If the caption is long, you will need to reduce the height proportionately. All images should be closely cropped on all sides, with minimum or no whitespace.

Images for upload may be in jpg/jpeg, png, gif, jpe, jfif, bmp, heic, heif, or webp format. High-quality compressed image formats such as jpg are preferred.

Key Title (key to subtaxa)


 

 

Key Notes

?

Key Notes will be placed between the title and the key. Use these to add additional information or context for the key.

 

 

Key

?

Paste a key into this box in the form of numbered couplets. The key must be dichotomous (that is, with exactly two leads per couplet) and of the form: couplet number{sep}lead text{sep}couplet goto - where {sep} is either a tab or the tilde (~) character and couplet goto is either a number (of another couplet) or the name of a taxon. 

For example

     1~Flowers yellow~Tirillus deserti

     1~Flowers blue~2

Note that when pasting from a Microsoft Word document, tab marks may paste as spaces; if this happens, use tildes instead of tabs

Click the 'Check my key' button below to check that the key has a valid structure.
