Subspecies and species names using a nominative

General remarks

It is possible to a use a noun as an epithet if it is a genitive [Rule 12c (3)] or a nominative in apposition [Rule 12c (2)]. The gender of such epithets does not reflect the gender of the genus name. The species and subspecies names found in LPSN and including epithets that are a nominative in apposition are listed below except for those ending in -cola. Note that some of the epithets listed below could also be interpreted as genitive nouns or even as adjective. See also the LPSN introductory page on forming names.
