Extracted from the current accepted list of British Heteroptera (2006). As can be seen there are no subgenus fields attached to any of the Nabidae spp. If iSpot and NBN are correct in their use of a subgenus field why then don't Wikprdia, or EOL use them too? Can iSpot do anything to resolve this issue?

subgeneric names

I think most invert recorders would like the NHM species dictionary to drop subgeneric names from the "preferred names" list as they are a real pain to deal with when preparing any sort of report, listing or paper where binomials are expected.
