Vernacular names for plants and animals originate in a number of ways. Some (e.g. abejorro, cagafogo, Jack Spaniard) are true common names, or what we might call folk names. These have the virtue of being part of the relationship between the populace and the local biota. However, they are a minority of names in the present list, the greater number having been devised by biologists. These latter may simply be translations of the scientific name (e.g. deutsche Wespe, zemleroda pchela) or the vernacular name in another languages (apparent examples: hästmyra, papírdarázs), or a biologist may make up a name that seems apt and descriptive (e.g. Australian greenhead ant, bunte Ameise). This latter method gives rise to some especially attractive names.

Equivalents of "ant", "bee" and "wasp" are omitted from this list, as are many names of very localized use. In the Taxon column, a genus name followed by "spp." indicates that the vernacular name refers to some members only; a genus or family-level name by itself indicates that the name applies to the taxon in general.

Many of the English names are from Bosik (1997).

Hungarian names are mostly from Móczár (2003). In the alphabetic arrangement, all accented and umlauted vowels are treated as their plain counterparts.

The greater number of Portuguese names are from papers by Eraldo M. Costa-Neto. Readers familiar with Portuguese and Spanish will note that many terms attributed to these languages did not originate in them. Rather, they are Amerindian names adopted as loan words in Latin America. A similar pattern applies to a few terms from the English-speaking West Indies.

The core of the Russian list is from Kipyatkov (1991). Russian names are romanized according to the standard system for English texts.

An expanding list of Swedish names is provided by ArtDatabanken (2012; see Steklar, Vägsteklar, Getingar, Myror and Bin). I have extracted only a minority of names from this source, mostly families and genera. The letters å, ä and ö are alphabetized as their plain counterparts.

The translations are mostly my own, with assistance from native speakers. As seen by the many blank spaces (...) and question marks (?) there is room for improvement.

I have received many additions and corrections from Kees van Achterberg, Johan Billen, Jim Carpenter, Faustino Chi, Jim Costa, Eraldo Costa-Neto, Matthias Forshage, István Karsai, Sergiy Libenson, Jean-Michel Maes, László Móczár, Göran Nordlander, Ana Sendova-Franks, and Fernando Silveira. Additional names in Polish are especially sought. I am uncommitted with respect to the addition of Greek, Serbo-Croatian and/or Turkish names, but would welcome suggestions regarding sources.

This list is not copyrighted, and permission is given in advance to reprint or adapt any part of it.
