A collection of species names that are worth a second look. Some names are interesting for what they are named after; some are puns; and some show other kinds of wordplay; some have achieved notability through accident of history, and many show the sense of humor of taxonomists. The site is organized around: Rules gives a brief overview of the rules governing biological naming (and, along the way, includes several curious examples). Etymology lists names that are notable for what they are named after. Puns lists names which are unusual for how they sound. Wordplay includes all unusual features of names other than their meaning and pronunciation. Gene Names lists a few of the interesting names which have been given to genes. Misc. includes things which do not fit elsewhere, including other curious biological terms, interesting stories about names, and some creative writing. References includes also links, acknowledgements, and a list of the newest entries.
