Automated taxobox system

Taxonomy templates

Taxobox templates

This template is only suitable for taxa whose names are regulated by the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. For ranks below species whose names are regulated by the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants see Template:Infraspeciesbox.


Usage is almost the same as Template:Automatic taxobox, except that you need to specify:

  • |genus=name of the genus (e.g. Quercus)
  • |subgenus=link to subgenus
  • |species=specific epithet (e.g. major)
  • |species_link= (optional link to page about species; defaults to genus species)
  • |subspecies=subspecific epithet (e.g. major)

Unlike {{Speciesbox}}, |taxon= cannot be used; the three parts of the trinomial must be given separately.

If the subspecies is extinct, but the species and genus are not, then you need to specify:

  • |extinct=yes or year (in order to display the year of extinction, year is needed if |status= is set, whether or not the genus is extinct)

If the species (and hence the subspecies) is extinct, but the genus is not, then you need to specify:

  • |species_extinct=yes
