Mapping names in TreeBASE
TreeBASE names that are the same are recognised using a variety of tools (string matching, GenBank accession numbers, synonymies from databases and the literature), and clusters of names that correspond to the "same" taxon are found.
A manuscript is in preparation describing how the mapping was obtained. For some background see the iPhylo blog, and Towards a Taxonomically Intelligent Phylogenetic Database [PDF].

Or you can go straight to some clusters:
