Sorry to all, some bad spider came in , blocked all my traffic, meanwhile, I managed to introduce error on that page. Now it should work.

figured out that extensions column is pretty pointless, so now it searches for all images that has word containing 'base word' in it.

so it finds for base word 'brevi' = short:
Bitylenchus brevilineatus
Anochetus brevis
Brevicornu arcticum

I guess this is the best logic there is, or not ?

Looks good.

You are not always consistent when giving the root and 'extension': for example azureus, caeruleus, not azurus, caerulus. (Perhaps you should give the whole masculine form followed by thr alternative endings, eg. 'caeruleus, -a -um'.)

Alphabetical order might be useful if the list gets any longer. I like the links to relevant species.


EDIT: I hadn't seen your latest post when I wrote this. I think your solution is a good one.
