Searchable List of Accepted Common & Latin Names

Thanks for putting this up Adam. - I hope people might find it useful.

PS: I don't claim any copyright for what's contained in the file.
I collated the information from sources freely available via the internet, and put it into searchable spreadsheet format
I'm quite happy for anyone and everyone to make use of the file if they find it helpful.

Regards,
Mike.

The above noted list of accepted common names has recently been revised, (March 2016), with approximately 100 more species having been added.
(In total, there are now 1502 species on the UK list with accepted common names).

The revised list can be found at this BMS web page: - http://www.britmycolsoc.org.uk/library/english-names/ but unfortunately is not alphabetically searchable by common name. (And also, at the time of writing this, it appears that the first three species on the list are missing!!!!).

I have revised my searchable Excel file to accommodate the added species, and will ask if Adam might include a linked version of that revised searchable file here.

Regards,
Mike.

Thanks Adam.

Just for info, the download is in Microsoft Excel 97-2003 format, and is approximately 250KB filesize.

For anyone who wants to see how it's formatted, here's a quick screengrab of the first part of the list: -
