one Wikimedia Commons user think that the image in Wikidata (File:Colchicum laetum5.jpg) is not this species. Want to say anything, user:MILEPRI?--Estopedist1 (talk) 05:57, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Dear MILEPRI and Estopedist1,
The plant that I have in my garden looks very different from that in Wikidata:
The plant in my garden matches the picture on webpage Colchicum laetum - Rare Plants, as well as the description and the picture in The bulb book by Martyn Rix & Roger Phillips - ISBN 90-274-9273-9.
MILEPRI & Estopedist1: Please advise and solve this issue. --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 16:20, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
@Meneerke bloem I don't know about the plant, but I was cleaning up ISBN errors and noticed that the one you posted above does not appear to be a valid ISBN. Can you check if its correct? Also, would you mind switching to using {{ISBN}} instead of the "magic link"? DannyS712 (talk) 18:14, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
Dear @DannyS712: the last digit of the ISBN was indeed not correct. The valid ISBN is ISBN 90-274-9273-5. NB: I have not the original book of M. Rix & R. Phillips, but the Dutch translation by Suzette E. Stumpel-Rienks, Bollen en Knolgewassen, ed. Het Spectrum B.V., 1982. I apologise for the inconvenience, --Réginald alias Meneerke bloem (To reply) 19:15, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
