    This chart came up on my Facebook feed. If it's not visible to most of you, I'll remove the posting.
    This is the accompanying text, translated by Google:
    Latin colors
    If you've discovered a species and are thinking of naming it based on the color of your representatives, here's a vast list of Latin colors.
    If you haven't found out (yet), still, take a good look at these Latin colors, because you'll better understand the scientific names when they appear.

    That's really neat! To have the chart illustrate so many different colours is remarkable. I've already saved it. Thanks, Wendy.
