linnaeus went by carolus linnaeus (once he latinized his name).

However, his name prior to that was Carl Linn. You should pick one format or the other. Also for the questions with the answer peas you should re-word it to be clear that you are referring to the scientist in the question above.

Was clear to me since the questions are in a set order. (and funny to remember a fact like this while I probably have forgotten a lot of things I was actually taught, the peas thing is something you pick up)

funghi wasnt accepted. Allways thought that was the way it was written, I guess maybe it is italian, cause the pizzas are funghi if, i am not mistaken ( and whaddaya know, the interesting fact shown above the comments is about pizza's ! #161)

Really thought it was written that way in english aswell, as you tend to stick an "h" into everything.

On another note, nomeclature without the binomial wasnt accepted. Is that necessary? ( unless I ve unknowingly made a typo). I was so proud I knew that word :) Though I blanked on domain class and order..

Well you’ve spelt it wrong in your comment, but it probably just needs a type-in - I also typed “binomial” and “hermaphrodite” to no avail. Good quiz though, I’d have got them all if I’d known what Taxon meant…

Really good quiz I enjoyed a lot, although i feel a bit nitpicky; but shouldn't it be Homo sapiens (not capitalised the species)?
