Chordate Species

* Under construction *

Below is a list of all species used here in phylogenetic definitions, along with authorities and links to images. Each species here is type for its genus, unless otherwise indicated (#). A species which has been newly designated here as type for the genus under which it is listed is indicated by a caret (^). The authority given is for the species itself, but not necessarily for the combination of genus and species listed (hence no parenthetical specific authorities). All of these species can be found on the cladogram of Chordata and those of its subclades.
