For those of you who may not know, the “suggest an ID” bar accepts partial names, by producing a list of “closest matches”. Thus,
eup mac becomes Euphorbia maculata,
mall becomes Anas platyrhynchos (ie Mallard), and so on.
I started a spreadsheet of shortcuts! Specifically, short ones, one to three letters or maybe four.
Thought it might be a useful resource for anyone who does a lot of IDs, especially if you’re doing coarse identifications. Maybe you’ll find a neat shortcut you wouldn’t have thought of. There are some weird surprises in there (
q q = Chelicerata??).
Please help me fill it in. As it gets longer and more complete, it’ll be more useful.
