I agree with @RLJ: Taxonbar does not belong in Links - see Pump Discussion and make your point, if you wish to change accepted practice on WS. I will leave Sideritis romana subsp. curvidens as a discussion point. Andyboorman (talk) 13:18, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Eriobotrya and Rhaphiolepis[edit]

I have had a look through this synonymy and cross checked Liu et al. (2020) and IPNI, unfortunately, have the authors made some errors. One or two are auto-correctable and these has been undertaken by IPNI, but the error for Rhaphiolepis loquata B.B.Liu & J.Wen, Front. Plant Sci. 10-1731: 11 (2020) is fundamental and results in a illegal name. See here. This is a shame as the combination refers to the economically important loquat hrough the name Eriobotrya japonica. Not good as E. japonica will have to remain on the Eriobotrya taxon page until this mess has been cleared up. I have contacted Dr Liu through ResearchGate and await his response. Such is life. Stay safe. Andyboorman (talk) 14:12, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Changes to style[edit]

Hello Fagus. You are busy changing the look and feel of Taxon Pages. Why have you not contributed to the Pump discussion? It looks like you have support for the changes, but not for just imposing them without discussion. Please contribute and also remove the tag on your User Page, which is obviously incorrect. Thanks Andyboorman (talk) 15:43, 27 May 2020 (UTC)


Hi Fagus - you've added the author link Sennikov to a lot of species pages in Aria, Hedlundia, etc. Unfortunately, this is a disambiguation page; all the links should instead point to Alexander Nikolaevitsch Sennikov (by using the link form [[Alexander Nikolaevitsch Sennikov|Sennikov]]). Could you correct these links, please? I don't have time for it, regrettably. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 23:19, 3 August 2020 (UTC)


Hello Fagus, you have changed the Name from Sorbus to Karpatiosorbus. Have you a source, who I can use in the german wikipedia? Thanks Hoefler50 (talk) 07:58, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

I rolled back your recent edit as I wish to add the protologue to the pages, but thanks for making them. Good cooperation. Best regards Andyboorman (talk) 08:06, 5 December 2020 (UTC)

You have not added the correct protologues and synonyms. I have added most of the protologues but few of the synonyms for the pages you created. Andyboorman (talk) 09:07, 5 December 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for trying to fix this after the site's update, but no joy. Any ideas? Andyboorman (talk) 20:23, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
