I found a website saying 1.4 million species have been named. However, since it's not my field, this is nothing but a website claim. And someone else has already answered.

1.4 million have been name
best estimate is 10 million
The estimate are 2 to 100 million

it is hard to evaluated the number of species due to the lack of information. It is though that 99% of bacteria have not been identify!!!

I realize this is a question that could yield a few answers, but Matt has correctly matched the answer I have which is 1.5 Million.

Matt recieves 1 point! Next question will be posted tomorrow.
