Armaniidae/Armaniinae again[edit]

Hi there, Just wanted to let you know I'm finishing up an article on this funky group and wanted to let you have a look before I posted it. From my reading of the literature it looks like the current trend is to treat them as a separate family from Formicidae, based on the lack of any fossils with a credible metaplural gland. Have I missed anything in the write up?--Kevmin § 03:40, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

@Kevmin: Your draft looks good and I think you're on the right track by following LaPolla et al. '​s 2013 article and by explaining the situation in the lead. However, since the List of ant subfamilies which I recently created is based on AntCat, which still treats the taxa as a subfamily, I opted for that alternative and added a short comment to the table. Having the list treat it as Armaniinae and the main article as Armaniidae may seem strange, but it is not an issue at the moment, I think. Whenever AntCat is updated, I'll update the subfamily list (by now I'm used to it; this year has been crazy in terms of revision of ants -- the dorylomorphs, ponerines and myrmicines have all been revised, that's about half of all ant species!). jonkerztalk 22:35, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
I know right! I've actually been ignoring the new taxa a little at the moment. Ive been slowly working my way through the A's listing from the now deleted Antwiki page, list of extinct ants. (I'm sad that it was deleted and wish I had grabbed the whole list and not just the A's). I just reached Armania, and there are only a couple more articles to do/attempt after that, then I can look at the new taxa from this year. I'll go ahead and upload the article to Armaniidae and make a redirect at Armaniinae.--Kevmin § 23:00, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Portals and self referencing[edit]

I like your comment on not having self referencing comments at portals. I think that kind of link belongs at the wikiproject. I do like having a link to an associated wikiproject, and i think a link showing what someone can do to improve the Portal itself (not the details on improving the subject) are acceptable. i dont like collaborations, lists of needed articles, or anything that is basically found at a project.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 17:28, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Ponerinae genera count[edit]

I have been looking around for how many ant generas are apart of the subfamily ponerinae, but while it says 42 on the ant subfamily list, antcat has listed 47 genera and AntWeb has listed 46, and a category I found on antwiki (seen here) has also 47, but even though that can't be considered reliable, the articles that are linked from there are plentiful of published references supporting all of them as a genus. The article itself only lists 28, which is rather inaccurate, unless there is an explanation for that. Do you have any confirmation on the exact count, or is it just muddled? Burklemore1 (talk) 00:13, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

@Burklemore1: The Ponerinae article was created before Schmidt & Shattuck (2014) revised the ponerines (they split Pachycondyla into 19 genera (see Talk:Pachycondyla) and erected a new ponerine genus, Iroponera). The subfamilies list was created before AntCat had fully updated their catalog. I'll update both articles ASAP. jonkerztalk 12:11, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I understand now. That makes a lot of sense now actually. I'll put the Pachycondyla article on my to do list and reform the list and such, just so it is up to date. Should there be a section or text in regard of these changes, also linking the recently split genera? Burklemore1 (talk) 14:36, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
@Burklemore1: A taxonomy section would be very good, short or long. I emailed Steve Shattuck and asked for a PDF of the article (the original is behind a paywall on Zootaxa); he was kind enough and sent me the article. If you enable "email from other users" in your preferences or email me (Special:EmailUser/Jonkerz), I'll forward you the article. jonkerztalk 14:30, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good. I'll get back to you soon. I look forward to reading it. Burklemore1 (talk) 23:33, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Damn[edit]

I having been meaning to get back to you with the file you were going to send to me about the recently formed generas. My apologies for such a late time. I have been super busy with the jack jumper ant article, I didn't realise there are many, MANY issues. I will email you or something as soon as I can to work on the genera. Burklemore1 (talk) 04:57, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Agroecomyrmecinae no longer has a single tribe[edit]

May need your assistance to clean this up: There has been a huge shift with tribes and genera in the subfamily Myrmicinae, and the genus Ankylomyrma, the only member of the tribe Ankylomyrmini has been moved from there to Agroecomyrmecinae.

AntWeb has a source attached to it, you can find it on the page, and here. I'm trying to reorganise the whole Myrmicinae subfamily list to keep it up to date, so I will need help if you are able to. Burklemore1 (talk) 15:59, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

@Burklemore1: Wow, so many pages to update! I'll start with a bunch, but it will take a while to get them all up-to-date. Re the main article: do you have a sandbox anywhere that is more up-to-date than the live article? I'm working on a subfamily list in my sandbox, based on work I started months ago, but never got around to actually make something out of it; it is still very much work-in-progress and it's hard to tell at this point how much time it will take to finish it. jonkerztalk 09:44, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
@Jonkerz: I will move the article I currently have in my sandbox onto a word document seeing as I cannot be bothered working on it for now, so I'll work in my sandbox based on the catalog on Antcat. I have done a slight update on the Agroecomyrmecinae article but it may need further sentence reconstruction since it DID only have one species until now and I was working rather quickly at first. Also, what should we do for particular tribe articles that are no longer classified? Should we transform them into redirects or is there another suitable option to keep the content? Burklemore1 (talk) 09:54, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
Update: Started working on reorganising the tribes, generas etc. on my sandbox, I am counting how many species and fossil species there are in each genus, based off what antcat says, but be aware some taxons haven't been reviewed on there yet. Burklemore1 (talk) 10:55, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
@Burklemore1: Yes, synonyms of valid taxa should be turned into redirects (both tribes and genera). Given how much work we'll need to put into this, what do you think about [preliminary] slavishly following AntCat, and then move on from there? Sorry for not coordinating this better (to avoid duplicate work), but I may be able to finish the main list today, if that would make it easier for you? I'm not listing number of species in my sandbox, but if you have the time to wait, that could probably save us some work. jonkerztalk 11:27, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Burklemore1: The list in my sandbox is 99% complete; it just needs to be double checked. jonkerztalk 11:46, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

@Jonkerz: That works, the main list is really what is important. The genera itself most likely wouldn't have changed a lot (in terms of species moving to a different genera), seeing as some of them did not change one bit and they had 80+ species listed. I must also make mention the subfamily Dolichoderinae needed some slight updating, but I easily fixed it (two new fossil genera's were not updated and among other things). Because of this some other subfamilies could be outdated, but I doubt it, though some caution is in consideration. As for AntCat, I think the genera's and tribes that are under review should be watched since it may not be completely accurate until it can be accepted, but other than that, AntCat is considered reliable and it should be followed, it's perhaps the only option for the best accuracy we can give to Wikipedia. Burklemore1 (talk) 13:49, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
@Burklemore1: The Dolichoderinae page seems to be up-to-date now after your edit, but there's still a few new synonyms I'd like to clear up before updating the Myrmicinae page. Science should be put on hold every other year or so, it would make wiki editing so much easier, heh :) jonkerztalk 08:00, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
@Jonkerz: It would make editing easy in all honesty, I agree. I'm glad we don't need to update the genus Camponotus (since it's up to date anyway), considering it has over 1,000 species and it would just be utter chaos trying to reorganise it. Since I have noticed your synonyms are mainly for the genera's, I will write the synonyms for tribes unless you have got that covered, but I am sure that will not really matter. Oh and also thanks for the update edit on Agroecomyrmecinae.Burklemore1 (talk) 10:36, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
I have written the tribe synonyms, even if their pages don't exist, but it'd be easier. Wrote it in general just to make it easier too. Burklemore1 (talk) 10:55, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

I created a new ant page and apparently there is a possible copyvio according to CorenSearchBot, but the only thing I used was the reference and I am certain this is a bug. I don't know about you, but since when did you need to attribute credit by using a reference on another site? (I have removed the tag but just go to my talk or the articles history page.

hi[edit]

I have spent the best of the last 5 years tagging talk pages for a wide range of projects at times

and consider that in view of the rate of burklemore's brilliant additions of recent that the comment at the task force

  • ''Expand {{WikiProject Insects}} with ants-task-force=yes, ants-priority; this should probably be discussed at WT:INSECTS first''

is well overdue, and the lack of adequate tagging fails to show that a significant task force exists.

Strongly suggest that you or someone either checks insects and gets on with fixing the template (I am not a tweaker), soon, my tagging finger is itching... satusuro 15:31, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Slight help needed[edit]

Good day, I need help with something. This time it isn't on a grand scale, but it's more of a question. I am going to renominate jack jumper ant again soon for GA (I believe it's just about ready once again), but I have noticed these synonyms published on the Hymenoptera Name Server, but I am really unsure if I should add them because:

  • I have only seen the synonym Ponera ruginoda as the only synonym in many publications; meanwhile the name server gives many more, many of which seem to be published under the synonym and the current valid species. Is it wise to add them if the name server suggests these as current synonyms? I hope I'm not sounding dense with this since this could just be a straightforward question, but it's best to ask someone beforehand.

Also, I must comment there is a peer review open for the article which no one has posted feedback for awhile, so if you would like to leave any comments on improving the article, it'll be greatly appreciated. :-) Burklemore1 (talk) 08:19, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

@Burklemore1: The synonyms from the Hymenoptera Name Server can probably just be left out, Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information after all. And non-obvious synonyms (and unresolved homonyms) are not very fun to deal with anyways :) Well that's my initial reaction, but I'll look into it whenever I have more time. I'm very busy with work at the moment, but I'll try chip in with a few comments to the peer review. jonkerztalk 17:38, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
@Jonkerz: Alright cheers for the answer. I'll be busy with university soon so take as much time as you need! Burklemore1 (talk) 04:20, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

About the Ant genus Pheidologeton[edit]

Some recent revisions and other recent text books indicate that this genus is now a junior synonym of the genus Carebara. So it is good to move the species within Pheidologeton to the genus Carebara and revised it..Refer page on AntWiki http://www.antwiki.org/wiki/Pheidologeton also.
