Abstract: The Phasmida Species File (PSF) is a taxonomic database of the world's Phasmida (stick and leaf insects, known as walking sticks and walking leaves in the U.S.). It uses Species File Software (SFS), a collection of programs that provides access to and manipulation of taxonomic information stored in multiple databases. SFS also defines a standardized user interface to facilitate interactions with the database. The database contains full synonymic and taxonomic information for over 2,940 valid species and over 4,500 taxonomic names (all ranks, valid and not valid). There are c. 26,000 citations to c. 2,300 references. There are also over 5900 specimen records and 9,000 images of two thirds of valid species, with more being added to on a regular basis. Keys to taxa will be added at a later stage. [Information of the supplier]
