Guess this one was coined in the years after Webby. It's just a science term, really, defined as

A group of organisms, within a system for their classification. Any group, of any size. A "population" is a taxon, so is a "phylum", etc. Plural: taxa. Sample sentence: The snouters are an imaginary taxon of animals invented by Gerolf Steiner.
