|This template is used on approximately 165,000 pages.|
To avoid large-scale disruption and unnecessary server load, any changes to it should first be tested in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpages, or in your own user subpage. The tested changes can then be added to this page in a single edit. Please consider discussing changes on the talk page before implementing them.
It tests whether its parameter, a Latinized rank, is a 'principal' Linnaean rank or not, returning 'yes' or 'no'. Editing this template will change which ranks are treated as principal, and therefore always displayed in an automated taxobox.
Ranks currently treated as principal are: regnum, phylum, divisio, classis, ordo, familia, genus and species, plus ichno- and oo- versions of these.
