The Bhutan checklist is based on the Oriental Bird Club list for the Oriental region. An appropriate subset of this list is used, based largely on the distribution and status data provided by Avibase and Birds of South Asia1. Note that this list is not official and may have some errors (although hopefully less than other published lists for this location!). If you notice any omissions or errors then please let us know.

First select authority to copy existing species from, then type species name, or enter a new species directly.

Species name is defaulted from the previous species row and should of course be overwritten!.

Genus is defaulted from the previous species row but may need overwriting; specific needs to be entered in either case.

Delete species

NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using a '/' or '[group]', e.g. Species A/Species B or Species A [group].

NB: Scientific should also be updated similarly, e.g. Genus specific A/specific B or Genus specific A [group].

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.

NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using '[lumped]', e.g. Species A [lumped].

NB: Scientific should also be updated, using '[lumped]' or brackets for the old specific name, e.g. Genus specific [lumped] or Genus [specific] subspecific.

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.
