Plants and animals named after Wallace

By George Beccaloni

A large number of species have been (and are still being) named after Alfred Russel Wallace (ARW), usually as wallacii or wallacei, often based on specimens he collected in Brazil and South-East Asia. Such names honouring a person are called eponyms (or patronyms if they honour a man) and taxonomists usually only bestow them on people they admire - Adolf Hitler has two and Charles Darwin about 300. The Index to Organism Names (ION) lists over 700 species names which start with "wallac", but in order to be sure that a species was named after him and not another person with the same surname, it is necessary to examine the published species description, which is often difficult to obtain (especially those published after about 1900). Please note that the list below is incomplete, but that I estimate that  Wallace has about 300 eponyms. Also note that an "*" before a name means that the species was described from specimens collected by other collectors NOT Wallace. For more information about the specimens collected by Wallace in the Malay Archipelago see the following paper by Baker (2001). CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE PDF A very good paper assessing Wallace's contributions to south-east Asian ornithology, which contains a list of the species and subspecies of birds named after him is available as a pdf HERE
