Species lists wanted

Please email me with species lists, or point me to some ftp sites.

I'm developing some software for storing details of organisms and 
cross-referencing with my photograph collection. In order to further its 
development I need some more species lists. (I currently have about 1600 
taxa listed, all typed by hand.)

Best of all would be British insects, but anything will do. Don't take 
the word "species" too literally either. Anything that has a Linnean name 
will do - a e.g. list of the families of Nematoda, or the aberrations of 
the Meadow Brown (Maniola jurtina) will do just as well.

I'm sure most of you would respond out of the goodness of your hearts, 
but as an added bonus anyone who emails me more than 50 new taxa can have 
twice as many emailed back if they so request. Isn't this a wonderful 
illustration that information acquisition is not a zero-sum game?

All opinions are my own, but Darter Systems agrees with me.
