Additional hints:

Taxa Only: when activating this option only for treatment name giving taxa are searched. If this option is deactivated, the search includes all taxa, even those cited within a given treatment.

Exact Match: this option might be important when not using the "name" form for searching a taxon but using the separate taxon forms (genus, species etc.) for looking for a taxon. When the option "Exact Match" is activated, the server is looking only for exact matches.
