Some tips before you begin

You can only search for scientific names. It is not necessary to enter data in every field. The query is performed with "and" between all fields containing data. It doesn't matter if you use small caps or not. In Krypto-S all queries are performed from the beginning of words. If you need a perfect match to your query, write == before it.

Krypto-S is available in Swedish, English and Spanish (The Spanish version can be reached after entering the database).

NOTE: Krypto-S is updated on Saturdays between 1 and 4 am CET and may not be available for searching at that time.
