Welcome to Wikispecies!

Hello, and welcome to Wikispecies! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:

If you have named a taxon, then it is likely that there is (or will be) a Wikispecies page about you, and other pages about your published papers. Please see our advice and guidance for taxon authors.

If you have useful images to contribute to Wikispecies, please upload them at Wikimedia Commons. This is also true for video or audio files containing bird songs, whale vocalization, etc.

Please sign your comments on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your username (if you're logged in) and the date. Please also read the Wikispecies policy What Wikispecies is not. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or in the Village Pump. Again, welcome! OhanaUnitedTalk page 15:38, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Just a few things to watch out for...[1]. For Porifera Incertae sedis, I have corrected the formatting and the page name convention.[2] OhanaUnitedTalk page 14:58, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

C.E. user HM J. Y. (talk) 15:21, 24 July 2019 (UTC)That's all right.

Redirects to articles[edit]


Thanks for your contributions. i have a little remark. If you add species from bulletins please add allso the bulletin. See for example Sylvisorex silvanorum. I have update this species and make a link to Bonner Zoologische Beiträge.


PeterR (talk) 09:25, 21 July 2010 (UTC)


I have made some minor adjustments to the pages you edited/created (see [3] [4]) OhanaUnitedTalk page 18:44, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

"Taxa by author" categories[edit]

Hi Burmeister. Thank for creating the recent "Taxa by author" categories. If possible, please also create the matching author pages: for instance Ronald H. Pine, so that his name isn't red-linked in the Category:Ronald H. Pine taxa page. Thank you! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 04:28, 12 November 2016 (UTC).

Hi, Tommy. Many thanks for advice. I create this category Category:Ken P. Aplin taxa, but already exist Category:Ken Aplin taxa. What I can do? Delete or redirect? Burmeister 12:34, 12 November 2016 (UTC) Moved from User talk:Tommy Kronkvist, since the discussion started here.
Hello again. Since both of the author pages Ken Aplin and Ken P. Aplin are correct as such, both should remain: i.e. none of them should be deleted. However, the "Ken Aplin" page was created first, and a lot more other pages are linked to "Ken Aplin" compared to other pages linked to "Ken P. Aplin". (You can always check this yourself by clicking the "What links here" link in the "Tools" section, in the left Wikispecies' menu.) Because of this the "Ken Aplin" page should be the main page, and "Ken P. Aplin" should redirect to it. That is also the case right now. So far so good! :-)
Now, the "Taxa by author" categories. Category pages are different than other pages. (Technically speaking, they are not in the same namespace.) There should only be one "Taxa by author" category per author, and it should always link to the "main" author page, in this case Ken Aplin. Category pages should never be redirected. The reason for this is that when other links are changed, redirected category pages might easily become broken redirects or double redirects, which are bad. Therefore:
  1. The Category:Ken Aplin taxa page should remain as it is, since it is linked to the main author page.
  2. Secondly, all pages in the "Ken P. Aplin taxa" category should be changed, so that they link to the "Category:Ken Aplin taxa" page instead. Otherwise they will become red links after the next step.
  3. When that is all fixed, the Category:Ken P. Aplin taxa should be deleted.
  4. This last step is not strictly necessary, but preferably all pages that links to Ken P. Aplin should be changed, so that they link to the main author page Ken Aplin instead. If this is done, we will have no redirects, and no red links = best practice.
We could do this the other way around, eg. link all the pages to "Ken P. Aplin" instead of to "Ken Aplin", but since a lot more pages link to the latter, this would involve a lot more work.
Regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 16:37, 12 November 2016 (UTC).

"Publications" section[edit]

Sorry about my typo here – thank you for correcting it!

I see that you have been exchanging {{Publications}} templates with the standard ==Publications== heading. That is good. When you do that (or when you add the heading to new pages) could you please also add the {{Inc}} template directly beneath it? That will render the exact same result as the {{Publications}} template, but without its software bugs! Please see the {{Inc}} template page to see an example of how it is supposed to be used. Please also note that using the {{Inc}} template is not a mandatory must, so if you happen to forget it, that's okay... :-)

All the best, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 01:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC).

Thank you for the tips!!! Almost two years out, it will take a while to remember so many details. Thank you. Burmeister 01:34, 13 November 2016 (UTC) Moved from User talk:Tommy Kronkvist, since the discussion started here.
You are welcome. I understand that it will take some time to remember all the details; also, quite a lot have changed here during the passed two years. Wikispecies is not only a wiki closely related to evolution – it is also evolving by itself!
One more thing: please make it a habit to always reply on the same page where a discussion started. If I start a discussion here on your talk page, then all answers to that should be made on this page. And of course, if you start a discussion on my talk page, all of the answers should be made there instead, regardless whether it is me, you or someone else who answers. Otherwise it can be very difficult to follow a discussion! It might be easy if only two people talk about one issue and reply on each other's talk pages (like you and I do now) but often there are many, many people involved in a discussion. For example consider the Village Pump, and other such pages. It would be impossible for users to partake in a discussion together with perhaps ten or more other users, if they all answered on each others talk pages, instead of on the same page. That's why I have moved your two recent edits back here, so the entire discussions can be found in one place. Please remember that Wikispecies is a very open community – this is not "our" discussion! Face-smile.svg Other users are welcome join in, and every user should be able to easily follow a conversation (whether or not they take part in it).
If one is worried that a reply might be missed in a discussion, there are ways to deal with that. Personally, when I write something on a talk page I always also add that page to my watchlist. Doing so is easy: simply click the little star next to the "View history" link. It will then turn blue, indicating that it is added to your watchlist. Click it again to remove it. (Another method of adding a page to the watchlist is to click the "Watch this page" checkbox below the "Edit summary" field, before saving the page.) After a page is added to the watchlist it is simply a matter of clicking the "Watchlist" link near the top right corner – it is situated between the "Preferences" and "Contributions" link. As I am one of Wikispecies' bureaucrats, I actually have more than 6,000 pages in my watchlist... Therefore, to make it easier to see recent changes I almost always click the "Hide my edits" checkbox on my watchlist page, and then hit the "Show" button. Then I only see recent edits on my watchlist that other users have made, which makes the list a lot more useful. (By the way, you find links to edit the list below the "Watchlist" headline. Using the different links you can remove pages that doesn't need to be "watched" any more.)
In addition to the watchlist one can use the {{Ping}} template. If I want your attention in an important matter (for instance at the Village Pump) then I can add the code string {{Ping|Burmeister}} to my message, and you will automatically get a note saying that someone is trying to reach you, with a link to the appropriate message. You will see that you have a new notification when the "Alerts icon" changes colour. (The icon looks like a bell HelpPage IconPack-04.png and sits next to your user name, near the top right corner of the window.) Please note that the "ping" function shouldn't be used too excessively: pinging users for every small issue in the world is only annoying... :-)
Again, thank you for your edits! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 03:02, 13 November 2016 (UTC).

Application for Checkuser[edit]

Referring to earlier discussions regarding a local Checkuser policy, I herebye apply to get Checkuser user rights, although we havnt reached a consensus reg Checkuser policy, but I want to give it a try if I can get the required votes. For a request to succeed a minimum of 25 support votes and an 80% positive vote are required (subject to the normal bureaucrat discretion). Requests for checkuser run for two weeks, and I ask kindly that somone starts the poll, like we do for adminship applications.

Please also note that CheckUser actions are logged, but for privacy reasons the logs are only visible to other Checkusers. Because of this, Wikispecies must always have no fewer than two checkusers, for mutual accountability. I dont want to suggest anyone, but hope that someone feel inspired and will step forward and also apply for checkuser.

My request to the Wikispecies community is here

Dan Koehl (talk) 01:40, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

Another application for Check User[edit]

As pointed out above by User:Dan Koehl, we need at least two Check Users for this wiki. I am nominating myself and would be happy to receive any feedback that you have to give (positive, negative, or neutral). Wikispecies:Checkusers/Requests/Koavf. Thanks. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 05:08, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

Additional Checkuser Application[edit]

I also have added my name to those willing to be a checkuser. Please see my application here Wikispecies:Checkusers/Requests/Faendalimas. I listed this yeasterday but have been encouraged to do a mass mail. I would also take the opportunity to make sure everyone knows that any editor can vote but that it is imperative that as many do as possible, for all 4 of the current applicants, please have your say. Checkuser voting has strict policy rules regarding number of votes. You will have other messages from the other Users concerned you can also read about it in the discussion on the Village Pump - Wikispecies:Village_Pump#Application_for_Checkuser. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:53, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Standing for role of checkUser[edit]

Like some of our colleagues (who I support), I am offering to serve as a checkuser, not least to ensure adequate coverage in case one of the others is unavailable.

Please comment at Wikispecies:Checkusers/Requests/Pigsonthewing.

[Apologies if you receive a duplicate notification; I wasn't aware of Wikispecies:Mail list/active users, and sent my original notification to the list of administrators instead.] MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:59, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Wikispecies Patroller.png

Dear, Burmeister! Would you accept to be a Patroller on Wikispecies? Wikispecies need more Patrollers and presently there is only 30 out of 150 active users.
Please see Patrollers for information about patrollers rights. If you are positive, I can nominate you on the requests for patroller rights on your behalf.

RFC on Checkusers[edit]

With one week to go I wanted to remind everyone of the importance of voting on the current CheckUser applications. They can all be found together on a single RFC: Wikispecies:Requests_for_Comment#Checkusers.

It is extremely important with votes such as this for everyone to be involved. There are strict rules in the Wikimedia Foundation Policy guidelines on these votes. I would urge people to have a good understanding of what a CheckUser does. This can be read up on here on the page discussing CheckUser's Wikispecies:Checkusers. Links on this page will take you to other policy information on Meta, HowTo for our site etc.

I would also urge people to look at our own policy development and some past discussion on this can be found here: Wikispecies_talk:Local_policies#Local_CU_Policy.

Wikispecies has in the past had issues that has required the intervention that is supported by the ability to do a CheckUser. Many of us are aware of this. The capacity to do this ourselves greatly speeds up this process. Although SockPuppetry can sometimes be identified without using a CheckUser in order to do the necessary steps to stop it or even prevent it requires evidence. We all know that sockpupets can do significant damage.

This is an important step for Wikispecies. It is a clear demonstration we can run ourselves as a Wiki Project part of Wiki Media Foundation. When I and several others first discussed this we knew it would be difficult at the time to meet all the criteria. We have only now decided to try and get this feature included in Wikispecies. By doing this it can lead to other areas where Wikispecies can further develop its own policies. In some areas we have unique needs, different to the other Wiki's. It is timely we were able to develop all these policies.

Patrolling rights[edit]

Wikispecies Patroller.png

Dear Burmeister, You have been granted Patroller user rights, which may be granted to experienced Wikispecies users who have demonstrated an understanding of Wikispecies policies and guidelines.

The user right Patroller gives the user a right to have their page edits automatically marked as patrolled, but also to patrol new pages and mark them as patrolled. For more information, read Wikispecies:Patrollers.

Wikispecies Patroller.png This user has Patroller rights on Wikispecies. (verify)

You may as Patroller use the Patroller user box on your user page. Copy and paste the following code on your user page:
{{User Patroller}}

In your case, using babel, you can actually use this code:


Please consider carrying out daily patrols of new pages and edits made by users who are not autopatrolled. Here you can see the Patrol statistics for the last 7 days on specieswiki.

Request for vote reg use of BASEPAGENAME[edit]

The previous discussions regarding if we should subst:ing BASEPAGENAME and change all [[BASEPAGENAME]] into [[susbt:BASEPAGENAME]] did not really reach a consensus.

Please vote here on the Village pump!

If you are not sure on your opinion, you can read and join the discussion about the claimed advantages and disadvantages of using BASEPAGENAME

Wikispecies Oversighter[edit]

Wikispecies has no local Oversighter. Since I had the communitys confidence regarding the previous application for Checkusers rights, as per local Oversight policy on META, I hereby apply to get Oversighters user rights, as a request to the Wikispecies community.

Application is located at Requests for Comment.

Please also note that Oversighter actions are logged, but for privacy reasons the logs are only visible to other Oversighters. Because of this, Wikispecies must always have no fewer than two oversighters, for mutual accountability. I don't want to suggest anyone, but hope that someone feel inspired and will step forward and also apply for oversighters rights.

Dan Koehl through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 15:01, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Oversight nomination[edit]

Please refer to Wikispecies:Oversighters/Requests/Koavf for a second Oversight nomination. Note that we must have at least two Oversigthers in order for anyone to have these user rights. All feedback is welcome. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:50, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Schulze templates[edit]

Thanks for fixing the Schulze templates, and others. It seems I haven't really got the hang of how to find the best/correct BHL links… Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 00:29, 12 May 2017 (UTC).

It took me a while to realize the location of the "url for current page", but it's more simple and the code gets cleaner. Regards Burmeister (talk) 12:32, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
So... to make for example this edit, where did you find the "URL for current page"? I'm asking since I used
  • {{BHL|/item/47657#page/593/mode/1up}}
which leads to i.e. the "same" URL as in the BHL template. You however used
  • {{BHL|page/13278935}}
which leads to i.e. a different URL but the same page (oddly enough...)
You're way of linking is by all means superior, but where do you find those links? By the way I almost always get my links from the search function on the BHL main page. Regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 00:08, 21 May 2017 (UTC).
Follow your example, on the lateral side of the page, under de "Pages", you will find that "URL for Current Page" ; I just copy the end of the code "page/13278935" and insert it in the template BHL. Burmeister (talk) 19:19, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
Considering I've been using BHL for several years it's a bit surprising that I've been able to miss such an apparent text string+link up until now! I guess I've been too focused on the actual contents of the BHL documents... hehe In any case, thanks a lot for enlightening me – it was most helpful. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 23:15, 28 May 2017 (UTC).

Redundant authors[edit]

Hello. You recently created the page Aaron M. Bauer. This is clearly a duplicate of the page Aaron Bauer, which has existed since 2007. Please remember to search before creating potentially redundant articles, and create redirects if necessary to accommodate name variants. Cheers, -Animalparty (talk) 05:43, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi! I ask for the fusion of the articles, keeping the name as Aaron M. bauer, for consistency with outhers authors. Thanks Burmeister (talk) 13:46, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Welcoming new users[edit]

Olá Burmeister! I saw your welcome note on User talk page, were you used the {{Welcome}} template. Welcoming new users is of course always good, but I want to give you a a handy hint. When welcoming an "IP user" that has not logged in, it is better to use the {{Welcome-anon}} template instead. That one includes information and links for creating a proper user account, rather than simply editing as an "anonymous" IP user. (I have changed the template on the above mentioned talk page, but kept your signature since it was originally you who welcomed him/her. :-) Thank you for your contributions! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 09:30, 6 July 2017 (UTC).

Template loop error fixes[edit]

Template loop error message
(click the picture to see a bigger version)

Thank you very much for your many recent edits fixing "template loops" within Taxonavigation templates. I have updated the {{Taxonav}} template documentation to better illustrate how it is supposed to be used. Hopefully this will help minimize future errors. I've also uploaded a screenshot to Commons showing what the problem looks like. The picture can be used when explaining the problem on people's talk pages etc, and I have also included it here on your talk page. Regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 03:00, 12 July 2017 (UTC).

Talking about this, the category yet have ±280 pages with loop (probably all relationed with Fucophycidae), but I don't able to find where are the loops. Can you take a look? Regards Burmeister (talk) 14:43, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Sure thing, I'll check it out tonight. Best wishes, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 18:11, 12 July 2017 (UTC).
Hi again. In regards to this edit of the {{Eupulmonata}} template about template loops, do you happen to know which other templates were involved? At the moment pages such as Euglandina rosea have a rather "long" Taxonavigation section which could be mended by a properly used {{Taxonav}} template, but we need of course use it without also getting template loops. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 21:07, 16 November 2017 (UTC).
"Only use this on Familia template level within "Taxonavigation templates"", I think if you want to use in others high taxa you must edit the template to avoid loop (and permit the use in other taxa) or create other template for that specific use. I don't known about the technical stuff. Regards, Burmeister (talk) 21:24, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your swift reply. I've created a page for the Spiraxidae family, with a {{Spiraxidae}} template including Taxonav to match. This solves the (aesthetic) problem with Euglandina and other daughter taxa.
I had forgotten about the Fucophycidae issue you mention above, but will try to take care of it tomorrow. It's rather odd though, since a whole bunch of Fucus pages shows up in Category:Pages with template loops, but I can't seem to see any error messages on the actual Fucus pages. But as I said that's for tomorrow – it's getting late and I've had a long day... :) Regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 22:19, 16 November 2017 (UTC).

Classification mismatch[edit]

When adding Eriphyla argentina species based on WORMS classification I arrived in a situation I could not solve (sorry, this is my first experience). I have based the classification on WORMS for the genus Eriphyla ( In this scheme, the grouping is as follows: Class Bivalvia -- Subclass Heterodonta -- Infraclass Archiheterodonta -- Order Carditida -- Superfamily Crassatelloidea -- Family Astartidae -- genus Eriphyla. Previous established classification jumped from Subclass Heterodonta to Order Veneroida -- Superfamily Astartoidea -- Family Astartidae -- genus Eriphyla. I suspect I can make things worse If I try to unify both classifications. Could you please help in this and explain me how should I behave concerning Wikispecies? Thanks a lot! --Fernando Archuby (talk) 01:51, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Fernando Archuby:! I think that WoRMS classification is more update, it's right? So we can update the template Astartidae to use Crassatelloidea, not more Astartoidea, and then create the missing templates (template:Crassatelloidea and template:Carditida), doing this the WoRMS classification will appears in Eriphyla argentina. The Help:Contents provide good information for start editing in WS, you can also see other pages to view the codes used for creating and formatting of the entries. Any specific doubts you always can ask. Regards Burmeister (talk) 12:58, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Author names[edit]


We have an agreement to use the full author names (if we know). I see that you make redirect from full name to name with an abbreviations. See Marinus S. Hoogmoed. Please don't do this never again. PeterR (talk) 03:59, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi @PeterR:! I'm agree with full names, but same names were create as abbreviate form, and we must move the pages to preserve the historic of the pages and not recreate as new pages. So please try to move the pages. Regards Burmeister (talk) 12:17, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

clarification of formatting pages[edit]

I see we were both editing page Haploporidae at just about the same time. I was baffled when I saw that Incertae sedis had been placed in parentheses and undid it. Then I checked view history. I had'nt seen the term Incertae sedis in parentheses before and thought I had made an error. I do prefer the Incertae sedis in parentheses for style but since I hadn't ever seen it, I undid it not realizing you had made the change. I'm glad this is the preferred styling and will definitely use it in the future. Thanks Nytexcome (talk) 17:20, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Nytexcome:! Incertae sedis is in latin, so go in italic, as nomen nudum or nomen dubium. You can see more in en:Incertae sedis. Regards, Burmeister (talk) 17:27, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Dagger symbol[edit]

About when you restored the dagger symbol in the "Name section" of the Daspletosaurus torosus page: I guess you're right – the is no rule against that. Marking taxa as extinct outside of the "Taxonavigation section" isn't common practice among our editors, but I guess it's up to every user to decide for themselves and add the dagger if they like to.

Aside from that, the examples given in the Help:Name section guideline does hint that the taxon name in the "Name section" should not start with a bullet symbol (you know, the round circle in the beginning of every row in a list). The reason is of course simple: only one taxon is presented in the "Name section", and since a single item can't really be called a list, no list symbol is needed. (As opposed to the taxon names in the "Synonyms section" where we do use the bullet symbol, since there are almost always more than one synonym.)

So, as I understand it, the following syntax would be correct:


Some taxon (with or without † symbol, per user preference)


  • Some othertaxon
  • Some moretaxa etc…

However using:


  • Some taxon etc…

is probably not correct, regardless of whether the dagger symbol is used or not.

Having said all this, I don't really care whether the dagger symbol is used in the "Name section" or not. After all the main reason for my initial edit was to add a picture of the Daspletosaurus torosus fossil! But as for the bullet symbol I personally don't think it should be used anywhere in the "Name section" at all, i.e. not for taxon name, nor syntypes, type locations, etc. Kind regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 18:11, 1 August 2019 (UTC).
