Hallo PeterR, omdat ik geen bal meer begrijp wat er zich daar afspeelt probeer ik het maar eens hier... Bedoel je dat het mijn fout is dat je op de en:wikipedia niet kan bijdragen en dat de "welkomboodschap" van je UP moet worden gehaald vooraleer je er weer kan bijdragen? Thnks. Lotje (talk) 06:24, 9 January 2020 (UTC).

  • Nu ik begrijp niet als ik wil inloggen bij en.wikimedia dat ik door jou geblokkeerd wordt met de opmerking dat mijn engels niet goed genoeg is. Ik neem aan dat ik weer toegang krijg tot en.wikimedia, zodat ik mijn werk weer kan doen. PeterR (talk) 12:28, 10 January 2020 (UTC)


  1. WhatLinksHere: A.M. Bauer (currently 34 pages, excluding talk pages which should not be changed)
  2. WhatLinksHere: Aaron Bauer (13 pages, excluding logs and talk pages)
  3. WhatLinksHere: Aaron M. Bauer (one page, excluding talk pages)

All are Aaron Matthew Bauer, which is where they should all merge to. I looked at zootaxa citations for all 3, and then tripped over the fourth. Neferkheperre (talk) 14:05, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Lysandra amanda altaishanica[edit]

Hi PeterR, since Lysandra amanda altaishanica was synonymized with P. amandus by Korb & Bolshakov, I merged your new Polyommatus amandus altaishanica page with that of Polyommatus amandus. Please notice that the protonym is Lysandra amanda altaishanica, not Lysandra amandus altaishanica. amandus or amanda is the same. PeterR (talk) 12:05, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

I have a question: did you find the combinations Lysandra amandus altaishanica and Polyommatus amandus altaishanica in any publication? (I can't find them.) If not, having them on Wikispecies would be original work, and we would have to have these two redirects deleted. Thanks! --LamBoet (talk) 02:11, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

In Eversmannia supplement 2, 2011 I can't find anything about Polyommatus amandus altaishanica or Lysandra amandus altaishanica that those species are synonymized with Polyommatus amandus. Page 95 mention a lot of Lysandra species bu not Lysandra amanda altaishanica.PeterR (talk) 12:05, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
It's at the entry of Polyommatus (Neolysandra) amandus, a bit above the middle of page 95: "amandus s.str. (=altaishanica Huang et Murayama, 1992)". Best --LamBoet (talk) 18:25, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Taxa by author templates[edit]

Please see Wikispecies:Village Pump#Template:Taxa by author, and do not remove any further instances of {{Taxa by author}} or similar templates. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:20, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

  • I have seen it, but their are a few like taxa by author. Such as usual it is a mess. I didn't know it is official.Monster Iestyn have first update all before complain.PeterR (talk) 15:39, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
    • I cannot make sense of your final sentence. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:03, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
      • I mean that their are different {{Taxa by author}}. Monster Iestyn have update all to the template. If he had done that he could ask me to work after the template. I copy taxa by author from a standard author.PeterR (talk) 09:38, 22 March 2020 (UTC)


Don't change the format of the Staphylinidae pages please. I've worked hard on them and I need them to be in a uniform format. Thank you! Mariusm (talk) 12:32, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

Marius. This format those not fit as we have an agreement for. I have an agreement with you to use Stenus (Hemistenus) etc. Every time you change the make up like
Vista-trashcan empty-alt.png This page is a candidate for speedy deletion. The given reason for this is "big project ended. Template:auth extinct".
If you disagree with its speedy deletion, please explain this on this page.

[[_{{{2}}}|{{{2}}}]] in stead of [[|]] etc.PeterR (talk) 13:19, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

Absolutely not! Stenus (Hemistenus) should be displayed and treated as Hemistenus. Subgenera are genus-class entities and as such it's far better to display them in the same manner as of Genera. Mariusm (talk) 13:27, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
May be I can find back the message you sent me to use Stenus (Hemistenus).13:36, 4 April 2020 (UTC) See also {{Prosodes}}. See Wikispecies:Templates: Subgenus (Non-Plantae).
Peter: I consistently use Hemistenus format - at least in the last 7 years I do! I advise you to use this format too because: (1) it is easier to grasp (2) more versatile - you can easily convert subgenus to genus and vice-versa (3) easier to edit (4) easier to search (5) scientifically correct (6) used in major catalogs and books. Look at Zyras and see how nice and clear it looks! Mariusm (talk) 08:57, 5 April 2020 (UTC).
      • Marius, for me it is not complete. Missing type, reference template etc.PeterR (talk) 09:31, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Eugène Simon page[edit]

Hello. Was the name page change really necessary? Now there are hundreds of pages related to a redirection. The category Eugène Simon taxa with 200 taxons has dissappeared from the main page, are you going to correct all that?? Honestly and friendly I think it was not necessary.--Hector Bottai (talk) 14:28, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

    • If everybody works after the agreements it was not necessary, but we works with the authors full names. I don't know your objection. I have already some hundreds of authors redirect to their full names.PeterR (talk) 15:27, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
      • My objection is basically the Category:Eugène Simon taxa. If you change the name do the full job, not creating a problem or an inconsistency. Now there is one page categorized when in reality there are 200.--Hector Bottai (talk) 17:08, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
        • I have an agreement with Tommy Kronkvist. I move the author name and he do the other things. In 14 days he start again with clean ups.PeterR (talk) 17:15, 19 April 2020 (UTC)


Dear peter, was it your intention to blank this page? Dan Koehl (talk) 10:31, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

    • Yes. This species was preoccupied by Clubiona serrata Zhang, 1992 = Clubiona manshanensis Zhu & An, 1988
Thank you Peter, just wanted to be sure. All well! :) Dan Koehl (talk) 10:48, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Carpelimus from Fauna Europaea[edit]

Please don't change Carpelimus based on Fauna Europaea. They are not correctly updated! Mariusm (talk) 13:42, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

  • Marius I know. I have already send them an e-mail.PeterR (talk) 13:44, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Please rename existing species pages instead of creating duplicates[edit]

Hi PeterR, when you update a generic combination, can you please move the existing species pages, instead of creating duplicate ones? This is important, in order to preserve the edit history and keep the project clean. For example, instead of creating Esperarge roxelana from scratch, you should first have renamed Kirinia roxelana to Esperarge roxelana, and then edited the page. I noticed you create a lot of such duplicates, and it takes a lot of work for others to fix them/merge them. Thank you in advance. --LamBoet (talk) 02:41, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

done. thank you for warning. If you have more please contact me.PeterR (talk) 07:07, 24 July 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. I noticed there was an even worse situation with Esperarge eversmanni, which had no less than 3 duplicate articles for the same taxon (Kirinia eversmanni, Pararge eversmanni, Marginarge eversmanni) and some duplicates in the subspecies too, I merged everything.
Another suggestion: when you move or redirect an article, it may be worth checking that the final article is associated with the correct Wikidata item, so that the interwiki links are available. Best --LamBoet (talk) 23:32, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
