On GBIF there is a free to use (!!) dataset with all the official Dutch names of all species occuring in the Netherlands: Dutch Species Register Dataset (in the .zip-file there is a list with ‘Vernacular_Names.csv’ which contains the Dutch names).
Can this list please be added to INaturalist? Because a lot of Dutch names are missing at the moment.
After removing the synonyms, 19386 (!!) accepted Dutch names are in the list.
You can find the cleaned list (=species without Dutch names removed & not accepted synonym Dutch names removed) here: Dutch Species Names GBIF.csv.
Subspecies are coded ’ Abax carinatus porcatus ’ in this cleaned .csv-file. If you need a file where they are coded ’ Abax carinatus ssp. porcatus’, then please let me know!
It would be really really great if these Dutch names could be added to INaturalist. It will certainly make INaturalist more popular in the Dutch speaking countries.
Thanks for all the help.
