[Taxacom] Fuzzy matching small win

Dear Taxacomers,

Just thought I'd share a small fuzzy matching "win" I experienced today
(and remind myself why I wrote Taxamatch software to do this) - I checked
the name of one of the fabled and weird (and now suppressed) Lake Baikal
amphipod genus names as reported in a couple of secondary works -
Crassocornoechinogammarus - in my IRMNG database and it said not found, how
about Crassicornoechinogammarus Dybowski, 1926 - and of course that was
wwhat I wanted! Always good to know the system works when you need it...

(you can repeat the test here if interested:

On another tack, I checked the genus name Cinclidonemertes in straight
Google (which uses its own fuzzy match logic) and it says, "Did you mean:
Cichlid Ornaments"? Guess not...

Regards - Tony
