Binomial names are written with a capital a space and a lowercased second
word. It's not a finite set, as it is even possible to mention cultivars.


species=Quercus lanata

For once that a perfectly good standard exists, why not use it, as is?


So I would suggest to replace the "species" tag with the "taxon" tag,

> without capitals or spaces and without localistation. And also use
> "taxon" for orchards.
