Thread subject: :: What does cf. mean in a taxon?

Posted by pierred on 15-04-2006 09:22


While browsing the gallery, I saw Gerard Pennards's Anthomia pluvialis pictures. The taxon is written "Anthomia cf. pluvialis". What does this "cf." exactly mean? Probably? Rather quite sure but not 100%?

Thanks in advance for your comments.
