From Wikipedia[edit]

Wikipedia:Typo Team/moss is using Wikispecies as one of its spell-check dictionaries. It has identified a number of lists of species which can be imported into Wikispecies fairly directly, since Wikipedia has a compatible copyright license. It would be helpful for spell-checking purposes if Wikispecies entries were created for all these species, assuming they are correct. This should also reduce work for Wikispecies, since the effort of collecting these has already been done.
