Why not put the reference down directly in the first place, that's what I would have done.J.H.McDonnell (talk) 01:39, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
This article seems to have a similar problem to the old ammonite/ammonoid article. Most of the text is about belemnites (Belemnitida) while the taxobox and other details refer to belemnoids in general, including several other orders that lived much earlier. I suggest we separate these two concepts into two articles. Cephal-odd (talk) 17:53, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Agreed, right on. And for titles lets stick with scientific terms like Belemnitida and Belemnoidea and not use the familiar slang J.H.McDonnell (talk) 01:37, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Definitely agree. Belemnites should redirect to Belemnitida, not Belemnoidea. Then there's the other problem. Belemnites is also a genus. The real problem though, is that no article exists on Belemnitida. But yeah, the descriptions on this page actually refers mostly to Belemnitida. Phragmoteuthida and Belemnotheutina for example, do not actually have the elongated and bullet-shaped rostra described in the article. I'll try and see what I can fix.-Obsidi♠nSoul 22:41, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I have created a stub for Belemnitida over the previous redirect here: Belemnitida. I'm too busy writing the article on Tessaratomidae at the moment though to be of much help expanding it. If anyone is interested in expanding it please do so, so we can move extraneous stuff from Belemnoidea to there. I will help once I mainspace the article I'm working on. Cheers. --Obsidi♠nSoul 23:23, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
