This documentation is transcluded from Template:Genera/doc.

Creates a formatted list of links to either genus categories (default) or galleries.

For subgenus/nothogenus, simply add rank=subgenus or =nothogenus.

Use {{Genera2}} to list a big number of genera in a more compact way.

Note: if you want to edit this template, first try your modifications on {{Genera/sandbox}}.You can then test your edits in {{Genera/testcases}}.
When the new version is ready, you can move it to the main template.



{{Genera|Craniolaria|Ibicella|Martynia|Proboscidea (Martyniaceae)|accessdate=2012-03-29}}

Included genera (Retrieved on 29 March 2012):
Craniolaria, Ibicella, Martynia, Proboscidea (Martyniaceae)


Eohiodon, Hiodon, Plesiolycoptera, Yanbiania

Note: prefixing a name with "†" will add the symbol before it to designate it as extinct.
Note: in case of disambiguated category (like Proboscidea (Martyniaceae)) provide the name with parentheses



Optional Global parameters

  • Use |rank=subgenus or =nothogenus to list subgenus or nothogenus (for varietas or forma, ask Liné1 first)
  • Use |source=<WebSiteShortName> to display the source of this genus list. See Taxasource/doc for the complete list of managed WebSiteShortName
    • Use |name=<TaxonName> with |source= to specify the taxon name if the current category/gallery name is not exactly the taxon name (In article "Vanda (Orchidaceae)" use name=Vanda)
    • Use |source2=<WebSiteShortName2> to provide additional sources (DEPRECATED: <WebSiteShortName> can contain multiple sources separated by &)
    • Use |ref=<reference> if your source is not managed by {{Taxasource}} (|ref2= is also managed)
  • Use |accessdate=<yyyy-mm-dd> to provide the date of the retrieval of the data
  • Use |note=<note> to add the a note at the bottom of the list (such as "This list may be incomplete" or further clarification on the sources used to create the list).
  • Use |inline=y to make it all one line (and it should wrap correctly if it takes up more than one line in the browser)
  • Use |title=<title> to change the text "Included genera:" (Warning, If you set the title, the title will not change with the user language)

Optional per-genus parameters

  • for extinct genus:
    • Use |†<genusName>| to display that <genusName> is extinct (|<genusName>|<genusName>=†| is Deprecated)
  • for disambiguation (like Proboscidea which category is Category:Proboscidea (Martyniaceae)):
    • Use |<genusName> (<disamb>)|
    • If there are a lot of genera, you can put all disambiguation at the end of {{Genera}}:
      • Use |<genusName>| then |<genusName>=(<disamb>)|
        For example:
  • for a note on a genus:
    • Use |<genusName> note: A small note| to display a note on a specific genus

Deprecated per-genus parameters


The following parameters should NOT be used:

  • for extinct taxon:
    • Do not use |<genusName>|<genusName>=†| to display that <genusName> is extinct
  • for disambiguation:
    • Do not use |d#=<disamb>| in case of disambiguated category (Like d4=(Martyniaceae) to transform the 4th genera into a link to 'Proboscidea (Martyniaceae)')
