Localization
Please add translations to Template:VN/title (+/−). All you have to translate is "Vernacular names".
Comparison with {{translation table}}
VN is not redundant nor always interchangeable with {{translation table}}. These serve different purposes. "Vernacular names" does not mean the same as "Translations". {{VN}} should only be used for things that have universal scientific names (e.g. taxa). {{translation table}} is for translations of the language-specific names we use here. {{translation table}} may be used in place of {{VN}}, but not vice-versa.
Microformat
This template (actually, the VN/ subtemplate) emits a species microformat.
