This template is only suitable for taxa whose names are regulated by the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. For ranks below species whose names are regulated by the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants see Template:Infraspeciesbox.
Usage is exactly the same as Template:Automatic taxobox, except that you need to specify:
|genus=name of the genus (e.g. Quercus)
|subgenus=link to subgenus
|species=specific epithet (e.g. major)
|species link=(optional link to page about species; defaults to
|subspecies=subspecific epithet (e.g. major)
