Peters' elephant-nose fish ("Gnathonemus

" Günther, 1862) is an African freshwater elephantfish in the genus "Gnathonemus". Other names in English include elephantnose fish, long-nosed elephant fish, and Ubangi mormyrid, after the Ubangi River. As the Latin name "
" confirms it is named after someone called "Peters" (probably Wilhelm Peters), although the apostrophe is often misplaced and the common name given as "Peter's elephantnose fish". It uses electrolocation to find prey, and has the largest brain-to-body oxygen use ratio of all known vertebrates (around 0.6).

is a species of fish in the Distichodontidae family. It is endemic to Tanzania. Its natural habitat is rivers.
" are found in tropical rainforest, forest edge, open areas, savanna enclaves in the tropical rainforest, and open Cerrado formations. It is usually found on the ground near water. This common species is not considered threatened by the IUCN.
is an unusual member of the orchid family in that it lives in a harsh environment, often in full sun. It is often found growing in acidic sandy soils or in rock outcroppings.
is a species of apothecial fungus belonging to the family Pezizaceae. This is a European species with rather small and irregular brown saucer-shaped ascocarps up to 5 cm in diameter. It is most often encountered in tightly packed groups on burned ground from summer to autumn.
"Peziza domiciliana" is similar in appearance to "P. repanda" and has often been mistaken for it. "Peziza badia" is darker brown, grows on the ground or well-decayed wood, and has longer spores measuring 15–19 by 7–10 μm. Other "Peziza" species have been reported to grow indoors, including "P. varia" and "P.
(common name: Peters' thin-toed frog) is a species of frog in the family Leptodactylidae. Its local name is "sapito de Peters" ("Peters' toadlet"). It is found in the Guianas and the Amazon Basin (Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela).
Some species, such as "Eulophia
", have adapted to very arid environments and are among the few orchids to have truly evolved desert living species. In the frost-free, semi-arid areas of Southern California, many "Eulophia" species, such as "E. macra", "E.
", "E. plantaginea", and "E. speciosa", can be grown outdoors year-round in well-drained pots with cactus/succulent potting mix (although "E. speciosa" prefers being grown in pure white sand), as long as they are given ample light through the winter and a drier winter resting period. Warmer growers, such as "E. pulchra" and possibly even the extremely rare and difficult "E. cucullata" (the foxglove orchid), can probably be grown outdoors in the warmer areas of Florida and Hawaii, also.
This goby has a thin, elongated, "eel-like" body up to 13 centimeters in length. It exhibits neoteny, retaining a larval form even when a sexually mature adult. It lacks scales and has a swim bladder and a small pelvic fin; most gobies develop scales, lose their swim bladders, and grow longer pelvic fins as they mature into adulthood. The body of "L.
" is transparent, and the eggs may be visible through the body wall.
is a species of semiaquatic amphibian in the family Typhlonectidae. It belongs to the monotypic genus Nectocaecilia. This species is found in Venezuela and possibly Brazil and Colombia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and rivers, and it is threatened by habitat loss. This species has a number of distinct traits that illustrate that it is a burrowing vertebrate, including its very small eyes and long, thin body.
is a species of fish in the goby family, Gobiidae, and the only member of the monotypic genus Leucopsarion. It is native to the northwestern Pacific Ocean, where it occurs in China, Japan, and Korea. Its English language common name is ice goby, and in Japanese it is known as shiro-uo. In Japan, where it is a delicacy, it is also called "shirauo no odorigui" ("dancing icefish").
German-American botanist Charles Mohr praised Peters' botany work, writing in the book "Plant Life of Alabama": “In his love for botany [Thomas Minott Peters] found recreation from his professional duties, and his greatest enjoyment was to wander through the adjacent mountains in search of plants. The study of lichens and fungi attracted him particularly, and he was one of the few mycologists working in the Southern field along with Curtis and Ravenel." The rare fern "Trichomanes
" (A.Gray 1853) was discovered by and is the namesake of Peters. He also did notable work with the genus "Carex". He left his personal herbarium to the University of Alabama.
Peters' platanna ("Xenopus
") is a species of frog in the Pipidae family found in Angola, Botswana, the Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and possibly Tanzania. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, dry savanna, moist savanna, subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, subtropical or tropical moist shrubland, subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland, subtropical or tropical seasonally wet or flooded lowland grassland, subtropical or tropical high-altitude grassland, rivers, intermittent rivers, swamps, freshwater lakes, intermittent freshwater lakes, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marshes, freshwater springs, arable land, pastureland, rural gardens, urban areas, heavily degraded former forests, water storage areas, ponds, open excavations, and canals and ditches.
The inflorescence arises from the base. It grows into a raceme. It is sometimes branched, as in the cases of "E. macra" and "E.
". The inflorescences on the species with non-branching spikes can support as many as 50 flowers; but in species with branching inflorescences, up to 150 blooms can occur per spike. While most "Eulophia" flowers rarely exceed 2" in width, this is often made up for by the sheer abundance of interesting blooms they produce. The sepals and the petals are alike. The lip usually has three lobes. As for most orchids, there are two pollinia for each flower. Eulophias (in bloom) can reach a height of 1.6 m (6 ft.).
