Gtk-dialog-info.svg Welcome to Wikispecies, Marac!

We like having new people contributing to Wikispecies. Here are a few things that may be interesting:

  • If you haven't done so, we strongly recommend you to create an account. Creating account is quick and free, plus it provides you more features such as preferences and the ability to keep a watchlist to track changes made to articles that interest you.
  • Have a look at Done and to do.
  • Help:Contents provides a good introduction to editing Wikispecies.
  • Templates are there to help you following syntax and formatting rules.

Please ask further questions in the Village Pump.

If you have useful images to contribute to Wikispecies, please upload them at the Wikimedia Commons.

We hope you'll enjoy the time you spend on Wikispecies!

Reply[edit]

You might find a less confrontational approach to be more effective. Having an inflexible and overly pedantic attitude to perceived "rules" does not make for a good Wikispecies editor. The issues you raise are trivial, so my strong advice is simply to move on and continue to make substantive edits... Stho002 (talk) 21:21, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

see my reply on the Village Pump, and please remember that this is a community project which you are trying to fit in to, and nobody likes a complainer ... Stho002 (talk) 03:30, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Basionym[edit]

please do not use this term, it is botanical. Instead, pls use 'original combination', thanks --Stho002 (talk) 06:24, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Neorhynchus[edit]

de Marval (1904) put the species into the already existing genus Neorhynchus, but there is no such genus as Neorhynchus de Marval, 1904. Even Shipley (1896) mentions the genus Neorhynchus --Stho002 (talk) 07:23, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

the mistake is made here:

but there is nothing to suggest that de Marval (1904) was proposing a new replacement name - he was just using Neorhynchus Hamann, 1892 [=Neoechinorhynchus] --Stho002 (talk) 07:44, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Re:Genera of Pallisentinae[edit]

it is a big mess! I have made a start at sorting it out --Stho002 (talk) 03:34, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
