Unformatted text preview: capitalized while the species name has the first letter in lowercase. Both names need to be underlined . A ½ pt will be taken off for each answer if you do not follow these instructions! 2) Some specimens were provided with a Genus name but no species name. I will ask for the Genus name of these specimens, not the species name. Remember, the first letter of the Genus name is capitalized and the whole name is underlined . Again, a ½ point off if you don’t do this. 3) When I ask for the name of the specimen or group (i.e. Phylum, Class, Genus, scientific name, etc), you are allowed a misspelling of the name of up to two letters for full credit. A ½ point will be taken off for three to four letters wrong, as long as I can tell that you knew what the name was. A full point will be taken off for five letters wrong or more. If you have any questions, send me an email at [email protected] Have fun, study hard, and relax!...
