The Interim Register of Marine and Nonmarine Genera is a provisional (or ‘interim’) compilation of genus names more

The Interim Register of Marine and Nonmarine Genera is a provisional (or ‘interim’) compilation of genus names including species names in many cases and covers both living and extinct biota into a single system to support taxonomic and other queries dealing with e.g. homonyms, authorities, parent-child relationships, spelling variations and distinctions between marine and non-marine or fossil and recent taxa. Taxonomic names in IRMNG are assigned flags to distinguish between marine vs. Non-marine, and extant vs. Fossil status; they are also arranged into a simple management hierarchy for navigation purposes, compilation of statistics per taxonomic group and more. Fuzzy matching is also supported (using "Taxamatch") so that a misspelled name can in most instances be reconciled to a correctly held name at genus or species rank, where this is held.
