The "Token set" option returns longer names that include the search terms, e.g., hybrid taxa. See what happens if you query "Bos taurus" using the "Complete match" option versus the "Set of tokens" option. The "Phonetic search" option can be used when you are not sure about the exact spelling of a organism name. It tries to find the phonetically closest strings (try "Drozofila" as an example).
