Thanks for creating this page. Code should already be in the box below. If not, click here to reset.

This template will create a taxon based on the data at Template:Taxonomy/|same_as=, but will over-ride any values that you tell it to.

Please enter:

  • |same_as= The taxon that should be referred to for any parameters left blank.

Optionally, enter any of the following, if you wish this taxon to differ from |same_as=:

  • |rank= The rank of this taxon (lower case and latinized, e.g. subfamilia, clade) (More)
  • |link= The taxon name as it should be displayed within a link. If the name of the link is the same as the way it should be displayed, leave alone the preformatted code (this will enter the name for you automatically). Show a taxon is extinct by adding |extinct=yes; leave the extinct parameter blank otherwise. (More)
  • |parent= The name (not page) of the parent taxon (in plain text, first letter only in capitals; e.g. Fungi, Cephalopoda, or in more unusual cases Leucoptera (plant) or Leucoptera (moth). See Title conventions. (More)
  • |refs=Any references that support the data that you've entered. (More)
  • If the taxon is not a kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus or species, but should nevertheless be displayed in all descendant taxoboxes (this is not a common occurrence!), add the line |always_display=yes (More)
