Hello PeterR. I've recently added a list of species + author and year of publication to Enypia (Geometridae). Before my edit, the page did not list any species or author. Since you specialize in Lepidoptera, could you please have a quick look and check whether the information I added is correct and complete? Also, do you have access to Hulst's publication? I couldn't find out whether Enypia perangulata Hulst, 1896 or Enypia venata (Grote, 1883) [= Cleora venata Grote, 1883] is the type species. Thank you, and best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 14:40, 10 May 2021 (UTC).[reply]

Sofar I could find I have add the species with details in Enypia. PeterR (talk) 09:57, 11 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 11:05, 11 May 2021 (UTC).[reply]

Mimia phydile (sic)[edit]


The correct original spelling of this species name is actually phidyle not phydile. You can see the OD in Biodiversity Heritage Library, which is always worth checking before you create a page here.

Could you make the appropriate changes please?

Thanks, Alan — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Accassidy (talkcontribs) 11:36, 10 June 2021.

I had the information from Delgado-Botello, F. & Vargas, J.I. 2016. They described a new subspecies Mimia phydile tatamaensis. Nobody had add Minia Phidyle, so I didn't check if the species name was good. PeterR (talk) 11:57, 10 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Are they entomologists?[edit]

Hi Peter. In June you created pages for the three authors Amy-Jayne Dutton, Liza Fowler and Natasha Stevens, all based in Jamestown, Saint Helena. You didn't add scientific disciplines for any of them, but I guess that they are entomologists? I would like to create Wikidata pages for each one of the authors, but first I must know their profession. (You don't need to update the author pages, if you don't want to. You can answer me here, and I'll take care of the details.)
Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 00:55, 2 August 2021 (UTC).[reply]

Tommy, I forget sometimes to create defaultsort etc. I have now done it.PeterR (talk) 07:00, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. I have now created the Wikidata items for Dutton (Q107771928), Fowler (Q107771668) and Stevens (Q107772305), and added the "Authority control" template to their Wikispecies pages. This means that when information about their relations to universities, libraries, museums and databases is added to Wikidata, it will also automatically be shown here on their Wikispecies pages. (In other words, their links to BHL, WorldCat, IPNI, GND, ZooBank, ISNI, etc.) Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 21:53, 2 August 2021 (UTC).[reply]


Hello. The page for Nama refers to a plant genus. I suggest that if you have an accepted zoological genus then you rename it as per consensus. Andyboorman (talk) 12:34, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Apologies taxon page has been renamed. Thanks. Andyboorman (talk) 12:36, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

How we will see unregistered users[edit]


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Mikhailov & Reshetnikov publication date[edit]

Just so you know, I created the template as "Mikhailov & Reshetnikov, 2022" because it has "Published 11 January 2022" online, despite the issue being for "October 2021". I don't believe that particular article was online at all last year. Monster Iestyn (talk) 17:32, 15 January 2022 (UTC).[reply]

You have to look for issue date Entomological Review, 2021 101(7): 979–991. The series 101 are from 2021. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by PeterR (talkcontribs) 08:30, 16 January 2022.
Yes, I saw the issue date, but with journals published online those issue dates can be misleading sometimes I find... I'll have to ask around how the publication dates even work for that journal at some point, they have confused me before and could affect publication dates or years for a couple of other references from that journal. It's a pity that almost nobody there registers their articles on ZooBank for some reason. (Only seven articles are linked to the series' ZooBank ID even now.) Monster Iestyn (talk) 14:12, 16 January 2022 (UTC).[reply]
I only publish after original bulletins. Entomological Review is a translation in english from Russian journals. PeterR (talk) 15:50, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm aware, though usually the translated articles have a notice with "Original Russian Text @ authors, year ... published in Entomologicheskoe Obozrenie, [details]". But some of the articles in Entomological Review do not, which could mean they are original articles for the English version? Monster Iestyn (talk) 16:32, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sometimes they publish only in english. See Entomological Review , 2018, vol. 98, No. 1, pp. 76-113PeterR (talk) 16:46, 16 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Grishin, Janzen & Hallwachs, 2014[edit]

Could you look into this template, Peter, and see if you can get it working?

Template:Grishin, Janzen & Hallwachs, 2014

Thanks — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Accassidy (talkcontribs) 11:36, 22 January 2022.

Done. PeterR (talk) 11:59, 22 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Zaragoza-Caballero et al., 2021[edit]

Just letting you know, the page "Temnaspis chamelensis" you created should be Tenaspis chamelensis, for Tenaspis LeConte, 1881 in Lampyridae. Temnaspis Lacordaire, 1845 is an unrelated genus in another family (Megalopodidae) that unfortunately has almost the same name. (I'm basing this information on this version of the article uploaded to ResearchGate). Monster Iestyn (talk) 15:54, 4 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Jane Costa[edit]

Hello, just wondering, where did "von Sydow" come from exactly? According to her website her full name is "Jane Margaret Costa de Frontin Werneck", which is also the name that Jane herself edited the page as back in 2018. Monster Iestyn (talk) 14:39, 12 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Ah wait, sorry, I see "von Sydow" on her website too so it might be one of her other names, but it doesn't seem to be the full name she prefers either way. Monster Iestyn (talk) 14:48, 12 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Coeliades lorenzo[edit]

Peter, Have you got a web link or a full title etc. for this reference? Henning et al., 1997 Thanks. AlanHenning et al., 1997

Wunderlich templates[edit]

Hello PeterR. Currently the two templates {{Wunderlich, 2008b}} and {{Wunderlich, 2008c}} which you created last year are marked for deletion. The user who marked them for deletion claims that the "References doesn't exist". Do you perhaps have a link similar to the actual publications, so that we can keep them instead of deleting them? Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 10:39, 10 May 2022 (UTC).[reply]

Tommy See [1] PeterR (talk)
Thank you. The templates was unused (on Wikispecies) and has now been merged with {{Wunderlich, 2008a}}.Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 12:47, 10 May 2022 (UTC).[reply]
Tommy, I'm now missing the pictures from the spiders. How can we fix it now? PeterR (talk) 12:56, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
What pictures? The templates did not include any pictures (they never do). Both templates only included 2 links, namely to the Jörg Wunderlich and Beiträge zur Araneologie pages here at Wikispecies. They did not include any links to external pages outside of Wikispecies. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:04, 10 May 2022 (UTC).[reply]
Tommy, I had made two reference templates 2008a and 2008b. 2008a described all the new families, species etc. and 2008b are the picturess from the new species etc. PeterR (talk) 13:17, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

───────────────────────── No, unfortunately that is not correct. Your original version of the "Wunderlich, 2008a" template can be seen here, including the timestamp "15 March 2021, at 12:34) by PeterR" which marks the time you created it:

As you can see it does not include any information about the families and species. Here is a copy of the same text which may be easier to read:

* Wunderlich, J. 2008a. Descriptions of fossil spider (Araneae) taxa mainly in Baltic amber, as well as on certain related extant taxa. Beiträge zur Araneologie 5: 44-139. Reference page.
** Find all Wikispecies pages which cite this reference.
Category:Reference templates

The Wunderlich, 2008b template was deleted earlier today by administrator @Neferkheperre. As usual, all deletions can be seen in the Deletion log. The only differences between the 2008a, 2008b, and 2008c templates was the page numbers (a: 44–139, b: 803–804, c: 813–818) which I have now instead all added to the merged {{Wunderlich, 2008a}} template.

Please note that we normally do not add pictures to reference templates. You have created a total of 42,515 templates here at Wikispecies, and I don't think you have added pictures to any of them. We only add pictures to taxon pages and author pages.

I will be happy to help with any further detais, but unfortunately that will have to wait until tomorrow. Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 14:34, 10 May 2022 (UTC).[reply]

Author Padron[edit]

I suspect these two names are same person. They are in your specialty; Pablo Sebastián Padrón and Pablo Sebastián Padrón Martínez. Neferkheperre (talk) 17:02, 15 June 2022 (UTC). Ihave moved all to Pablo Sebastián Padrón Martínez and Pablo Sebastián Padrón Martínez taxa. PeterR (talk) 13:32, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
