Subspecies and species names ending in -cola

Epithets ending in -cola stand for "inhabitant of". Sometimes the full version incola is used. These epithets can be in the masculine or feminine gender [Rule 65 (1)] and are used as a nominative in apposition [Rule 12c (2)]. Accordingly, their gender does not reflect the gender of the genus name. The species and subspecies names found in LPSN and including such epithets are listed below. See also the LPSN introductory page on forming names.

In the case of a new combination these epithets must not be adapted to the gender of the genus name.
