Glossary Term: syn.

1. Synonym.
2. Synonymous with.
3. Another name for the same species, especially an earlier or illegitimate name not currently used for the species. If two or more names are based on the same type, they are homotypic synonyms, sometimes indicated by three horizontal lines between the two names. If they are based on different types, they are heterotypic, sometimes indicated by two horizontal lines between the two names. In this manner, alternate names following the primary name are earlier or later or illegitimate names representing all or part of the concept of the primary name. The primary name includes the alternate name, but the alternate name may not include the whole taxon represented by the primary name.
