Expanding Lists design method

I am looking for a design method I have seen several times, but I don't know what it is called, so I can't locate it.

 

It is a list view ... not a portal ... with arrows/triangles to indicate there are sub records. When the arrow is clicked additional sub records show for the selected record. I am likely not explaining this well, but I know what I want to see visually and think this method will do the trick. Here is a pseudo sample to help.

 

> Cats

> Dogs

> Fish

> Birds

 

When the arrow beside Cats is clicked, something like this would display [still in the list view].

 

> Cats

> Gray

> Tabby

> Calico

> Dogs

> Fish

> Birds

 

When the arrow beside Calico is clicked, something like this might display [still in list view].

> Cats

> Gray

> Tabby

> Calico

> Kitty

> Bessie

> Lilly

> Dogs

> Fish

> Birds

 

 

Thanks.
