Creates a formatted list of links to either genus categories (default) or galleries.

For subgenus, simply add rank=subgenus

Takes up to 200 names (use {{genera2}} for more) and allows for disambiguation (see example).

Note<colon> if you want to edit this template, first try your modifications on {{Genera/sandbox}}.You can then test your edits in {{Genera/testcases}}.
When the new version is ready, you can move it to the main template.


{{genera|Craniolaria|Ibicella|Martynia|Proboscidea|d4=(Martyniaceae)|accessdate=2012-03-29}} creates:

Included genera (Retrieved on ):
Craniolaria, Ibicella, Martynia, Proboscidea
  • "d4" is used because the 4th word, "Proboscidea", is the one being disambiguated. |d#= can be used for as many words need it (a space is inserted automatically).

{{genera|Eohiodon|Eohiodon=†|Hiodon|Plesiolycoptera|Plesiolycoptera=†|Yanbiania|Yanbiania=†|source=MSW|accessdate=2012-03-29}} creates:

Included genera (for Mammal Species of the World):
Eohiodon, Hiodon, †Plesiolycoptera, †Yanbiania
  • Setting a name to "†" will add the symbol before it to designate it as extinct.

{{genera|Echinometra|Echinostrephus|Heterocentrotus|source=ITIS}} creates:

Included genera (for ITIS):
Echinometra, Echinostrephus, Heterocentrotus



Optional parameters

  • Use |rank=subgenus to list subgenus (for varietas or forma, ask Liné1 first)
  • Use |source=<WebSiteShortName> to display the source of this genus list. See Taxasource/doc for the complete list of managed WebSiteShortName
    • Use |name=<TaxonName> with |source= to specify the taxon name if the current category/gallery name is not exactly the taxon name (In article "Vanda (Orchidaceae)" use name=Vanda)
    • Use |source2=<WebSiteShortName> to provide additional sources
    • Use |ref=<reference> if your source is not managed by {{Taxasource}}
  • Use |accessdate=<yyyy-mm-dd> to provide the date of the retrieval of the data
  • Use |note=<note> to add the a note at the bottom of the list (such as "This list may be incomplete" or further clarification on the sources used to create the list).
  • Use |<taxonName>=† to display that the taxon <taxonName> of the list is extinct
  • Use |linkto=gallery to link to galleries instead.
  • Use |inline=y to make it all one line (and it should wrap correctly if it takes up more than one line in the browser)
  • Use |title=<title> to change the text "Included genera:" (Warning, If you set the title, the title will not change with the user language)

Usage examples


  • concurrent templates for other ranks:
    • {{subspecies}} - to list species in the format G. s. subspecies
    • {{species}} - to list species in the format G. species
    • {{species2}} - to list more than 300 species
    • {{genera2}} - to list more than 200 genera
    • {{taxa}} - to list higher ranks taxa (families, orders...)
    • {{SimpleTaxa}} - a simplified version of {{Taxa}} and {{Genera}} to use in notes
  • {{genera/}} - sub-template
  • {{genera/category}} - sub-template
  • {{genera/text}} - sub-template
  • {{taxasource}} - to see the list of possible sources
  • {{taxolang}} - sub-template for internalisation of "Included genera:"
