Species Examples (Quantitative )

Quantitative examples of common and scientific names of living things, which could be marked up with a "species" (or similar) microformat.

Note: the original name of the proposed microformat, "species", is likely to change, probably to "hbiota" or "htaxon". The former has been retained here, to avoid having to make many repetitive and perhaps redundant edits

If you find a link which is no longer working, please replace it with a suitable alternative, rather than simply deleting it. Thank you.

Evidence

There are perhaps 30 million distinct species in the world today. [1]

For earlier evidence of quantitative use of species' and other taxonomic names, see [2] and [3]. Furthermore:
