Explanation of Text File Format

The downloaded file is uncompressed — even the largest file is small enough not to require compression. The file is an ASCII text file, with one line per genus name, sorted alphabetically. Each field will be delimited by double quotation marks, and separated from the next by a comma. The fields are:

  1. Unique identity number
  2. Hybrid sign
  3. Name
  4. Author
  5. If a synonym, the unique identity number of the preferred name
