The first stage of this project is to reproduce the 2006 checklist of accepted names in a searchable taxonomy hierarchy. 

The countries for which taxa are recorded are also being added, both in the orginal checklist format and with the distribution indicated on a map. The next stage of the project will be to work on linking the literature references via the website's bibliography section. Once the '2006' data is successfully incorporated we can begin to update the checklist with synonymy and distribution records made post-2006!
