Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
As of February 2015 only "plant" and "fish" are recognized; any other value is ignored.
  • The default is that the redirect is printworthy; |printworthy=no may be used to specify that it is not (e.g. if it is very close in spelling to another alternative scientific name).
  • Add this rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R from alternative scientific name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Template {{This is a redirect}} or its alias {{Redr}} may also be used to add this and up to seven appropriate rcats to a redirect. Any subcategory must then be given by |pN= where N is the position of this template in the list of rcats.
{{Redr|from alternative scientific name|from move}}
{{Redr|from alternative scientific name|p1=plant|from move}}
{{Redr|from move|from alternative scientific name|p2=plant}}
