Not a valid name. It should have read iam stuckia! anyway. And you forget the definition, bacteria causing the writers block. But I restart from the one before, let's be serious everyone:
ilex aquifoliu m or english Holly. The holiday season is finished, but I wouldn't mind a few extra days off ;)

Aaptosyax grypus

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes)

A large fast-swimming predator, feeding on fish of the middle and the upper water levels. Although most common along the Thai-Lao border at the mouth of the Mun River, its numbers have drastically decreased in recent years. This is perhaps due to dam construction or excessive gill netting, to which active pursuit predators, like this species, are particularly vulnerable (Ref. 12693). Undertakes upstream migration at the same time as Probarbus sp. in December-February (Ref. 37770) which may be related to spawning activity (Ref. 9497). Attains over 30 kg (Ref. 9497).

Didn't anyone spot the mistake?

It's on page 2 right after my post. I used the word Strelitzia Reginae then Victor used the word Orthohepadnavirinae which begins with an O when it should have begun with an E.
