This online tool allows to divide scientific names into their components and to check them against the taxonomic backbone used by GBIF. It can be used to automate some processes while digitizing or curating lists of scientific names. The parser is written in java and based on regular expressions to disect name strings into its components. It does only keep name parts required to reconstruct a full 3-parted name with an optional subgenus, but ignores additional infraspecific parts such as the subspecies given for varieties.
