Catalogue of Life - June 2021

Data Source ID: 1

The Catalogue of Life (CoL) is an assembly of expert-based global species checklists with the aim to build a comprehensive catalogue of all known species of organisms on Earth. Continuous progress is made towards completion, but for now, it probably includes just over 80% of the world's known species. The Catalogue of Life estimates 2.5M extant species on the planet recognised by taxonomists at present time. This means that for many groups it continues to be deficient, and users may notice that many species are still missing from the Catalogue. ### What's new in this edition (June 2021)? #### 4 new checklists: * WoRMS Crinoidea * WoRMS Nematoda, Nemys * WoRMS Brachiopoda (it’s a replacement for Brachiopoda by Emig & al.) * WoRMS Euphausiacea (it’s a replacement for ETI Euphausiacea) #### 71 checklists have been updated: * ITIS (9th update since AC19; new sectors: family Smarididae, superfamily Calyptostomatoidea, infraorder Stenopodidea) * Alucitoidea (5th update) * Brassicaceae * CCW * Eumycetozoa.com * Pterophoroidea (4th update) * ReptileDB * Scarabs (10th update) * Systema Dipterorum * World Ferns (6th update) * World Plants (5th update) _including automated updates for:_ * WoRMS Actiniaria * WoRMS Amphipoda * WoRMS Antipatharia * WoRMS Appendicularia * WoRMS Ascidiacea * WoRMS Asteroidea * WoRMS Bochusacea * WoRMS Brachypoda * WoRMS Brachyura * WoRMS Bryozoa * WoRMS Cephalochordata * WoRMS Ceriantharia * WoRMS Cestoda * WoRMS Chaetognatha * WoRMS Copepoda * WoRMS Corallimorpharia * WoRMS Ctenophora * WoRMS Cubozoa * WoRMS Cumacea * WoRMS Echinoidea * WoRMS Foraminifera * WoRMS Gastrotricha * WoRMS Gnathostomulida * WoRMS Holothuroidea * WoRMS Hydrozoa * WoRMS Isopoda * WoRMS Kinorhyncha * WoRMS Leptostraca * WoRMS Loricifera * WoRMS Merostomata * WoRMS MilliBase * WoRMS Mollusca * WoRMS Monogenea * WoRMS Mystacocarida * WoRMS Myxozoa * WoRMS Nemertea * WoRMS Octocorallia * WoRMS Oligochaeta * WoRMS Ophiuroidea * WoRMS Orthonectida * WoRMS Ostracoda * WoRMS Placozoa * WoRMS Polychaeta * WoRMS Polycystina * WoRMS Porifera * WoRMS Priapulida * WoRMS Pycnogonida * WoRMS Remipedia * WoRMS Rhombozoa * WoRMS Scleractinia * WoRMS Scyphozoa * WoRMS Staurozoa * WoRMS Tanaidacea * WoRMS Tantulocarida * WoRMS Thaliacea * WoRMS Thermosbaenacea * WoRMS Trematoda * WoRMS Turbellarians * WoRMS Xenoturbellida * WoRMS Zoantharia
