Description: Especially for animals our backbone misses many, many synonyms.Instead of trying to add all possible recombinations (which in many taxnomomic groups are not even tracked at all) to our backbone we can try to match a species name by its epitheton, classification and authorship.

As the same species eipthet is potentially occurring many times we need to make sure the classification matches tightly (at least on family level) and that also the authorship is exactly the same or has at least the same year!]]>
