GNIE Matching Taxon Name Service

The GNIE Matching Taxon Name Service accepts a Protonym UUID, and returns a list of taxon names related to the indicated Protonym, including alternate spellings and combinations (homotypic synonyms), junior heterotypic synonyms, and senior heterotypic synonyms. These represent all variants known to exist; no effort is made to represent the taxonomically “correct” treatment.
