I work with experts in this field and so it's a simple task for me to
ask around. Also, googling for binomial nomenclature and binominal
nomenclature reveals that binomial is the far more common usage.
Google even tried to spell-correct binominal to binomial.
Going back to learning how the market place is doing it, I've yet to
see an example that uses the term binomial as a class name in markup.
If I find an example, I'll post it.

I will focus efforts in this area. In my own experience working in the
field of biodiversity informatics and web design, I would anecdotally
say that there are very few common existing practices apart from those
I've already pointed out. I'll work these into the examples.
