After you type in the Common name the drop down should help you find the Scientific Binomial these are very precise Interesting example the NBN shows the map for 2168 Viper's Bugloss Hadena irregularis but the common name also refers to the plant which is a Moth as well as a Plant - the right map Echium vulgare will now load .
