I have list of species like this:
Drosophila melanogaster Homo sapiens Mus musculus Aedes aegypti Spodoptera frugiperda Rattus norvegicus Bos taurus Caenorhabditis elegans Feline foamy
I want to classify them as in the second column. Is there easier way to do that without manually searching Wikipedia?
Drosophila melanogaster Insects Homo sapiens Other eukaryote Mus musculus Other eukaryote Aedes aegypti Insects Spodoptera frugiperda Insects Rattus norvegicus Other eukaryote Bos taurus Other eukaryote Caenorhabditis elegans Other eukaryote Feline foamy Virus
I know this classification is uneven, but I want to know is how many insect species are there compared to other eukaryote.
@Kiriya if all you want is to know whether it's an insect or another eukaryote, just go up in the tree until you hit either Hexapoda (insects) or Eukaryota, and classify accordingly.
right, but there are non-insect hexapods so go until you hit Insecta (NCBI Taxonomy is a little odd in that gives "insect" as the common name for hexapods)
