Think you can name all the cloud types? Think again! Cloud classification is much more complicated than the names we learned in school—such as cumulonimbus, cirrus, stratus, cumulus, etc. Meteorologists officially classify clouds the way biologists classify animals: using Latin names for genus, species and "varieties."  They are grouped by six properties: altitude, shape, dimension, texture, luminance and color. The ten cloud genera (plural of genus) include some names you probably ...

The word bacillus (plural bacilli) may be used to describe any rod-shaped bacterium, and such bacilli are found in many different taxonomic groups of bacteria. However, the name Bacillus, capitalized and italicized, refers to a specific genus of bacteria. The name Bacilli, capitalized but not italicized, can also refer to a more specific taxonomic class of bacteria that includes two orders, one of which contains the genus Bacillus.

We are a example of GENUS AND SPECIES  In biology, a genus /ˈdʒiːnəs/ (plural: genera) is a taxonomic rank used in the biological classification of living and fossil organisms. In the hierarchy of biological classification, genus comes above species and below family.  We are all genus's and species and that's why i picked a picture of us.

Dumbo octopus refers to one of the 13, 14, 17 or 18 species – scientists haven’t agreed yet on how many species have been discovered – of deep-sea octopuses (that’s the generally accepted plural; not octopi) in the genus Grimpoteuthis. They are one of the cutest sea creatures but also one of the rarest, which is why not much is known about them. They remain mysteries of the deep.
