Cypress vs Cupressus? 93.187.186.7 (talk) 12:14, 11 November 2011 (UTC)


Cypress pines

Here is a photo of mine of some cypress pines in Melbourne Australia. I don't know what species they are, but someone who does can install this photo in the appropriate article. Adam 09:38, 25 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Mythos section needed?[edit]

Is the Cypress#Mythos section appropriate here? It seems out of place in a disambiguation page. Wouldn't it be better on the Hades page and/or the Cupressus_sempervirens page? --Dcfleck 17:02, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

"The word "cypress" is derived from Old French "cipres", which was imported from Latin "cyparissus," the latinisation of the Greek κυπάρισσος (kyparissos).[1][2]" AAARGH! But what does the Greek κυπάρισσος (kyparissos) mean ???????? 86.134.49.128 (talk) 06:49, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Translation[edit]

As I was trying to find Czech translation, I realized there is translation for Cupressaceae (https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyp%C5%99i%C5%A1ovit%C3%A9) and Cupressus (https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyp%C5%99i%C5%A1), but struggle to find any translation for this extra article and it doesn't seem to give any different information. Shouldn't it be merged with Cupressacae article? Kub1x (talk) 07:15, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
