GNparser v1.3.3 is out. The following changes happened since 1.3.0:

  • GNparser received a citable DOI (v1.3.1)

  • Names-exceptions that are hard to parse because they use some nomenclautral, or biochemical terms as specific epithets are [now covered]. Some examples:

Navicula bacterium
Xestia cfuscum
Bolivina prion
Bembidion satellites
Acrostichum nudum
Gnathopleustes den
  • 2-letter generic names are appended with 3 more genera (Do, Oo, Du).
Do holotrichius (beetle)
Oo spinosum (arachnid)
Nu aakhu (annelid)
  • Known prefixes in authorships are appended with 3 more prefixes adding support for authors like:
delle Chiaje
dos Santos
ten Broeke
ten Hove
  • Parsing of names with ms in like Crisia eburneodenticulata Smitt ms in Busk, 1875 is supported (normalized to Crisia eburneodenticulata Smitt ex Busk, 1875).

  • More annotation ‘stop’ words are added, fixing parsing for names like:

Crisina excavata (d'Orbigny, 1853) non (d'Orbigny, 1853)
Eulima excellens Verkrüzen fide Paetel, 1887
Porina reussi Meneghini in De Amicis, 1885 vide Neviani (1900)

Many thanks to @diatomsRcool, @KatjaSchulz and @joelnitta for feature requests and bug reports!
