Gtk-dialog-info.svg Welcome to Wikispecies, Mr.Rosewater!

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!

Mammillaria[edit]

Thanks for your additions to this large and difficult genus.

A quick word about "References":

  1. What we really want here is the bibliographic information regarding the original publication of the name, and publications that modify the name and/or circumscription. External links to other sites about the organism are sometimes OK, but they're listed in a subheader for External links.
  2. "The Plant List" is not a reliable source (yet). It is simply a database dump from several existing lists, and is not authoritative. It is full of serious errors and has countless omissions.
