Taxa named by a German naturalist Johann Jakob von Kaup (born April 10, 1803 – July 4, 1873). A proponent of natural philosophy, he believed in an innate mathematical order in nature and he attempted biological classifications based on the Quinarian system. Kaup is also known for having coined popular prehistoric taxa like Pterosauria and Machairodus.
