Liobagrus somjinensis[edit]

I see that you removed the Coren Search Bot notice from Liobagrus somjinensis, but I do not see any sign that the issues were addressed. It looks to me like a WP:Close paraphrase. What did you conclude?--S Philbrick(Talk) 13:05, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

It is a technical description mostly based on the original description of the species. It is hard to really rephrase a description like that without turning to original research. Ruigeroeland (talk) 15:55, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Ways to improve Heterochorista rostrata[edit]

Hi, I'm Matheweditking. Ruigeroeland, thanks for creating Heterochorista rostrata!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Hey why dont u expand this

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Matheweditking (talk) 16:26, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Mocis frugalis[edit]

Hello Ruigeroeland, the image 'Mocis frugalis Noctuidae Erebidae, Catocalinae.jpg' is about a Mocis frugalis (see also filename) and is also shown in the article Mocis frugalis. I removed that picture from the taxobox about another species; the Mocis proverai. You restored that picture there. Please explain. - Robotje (talk) 11:10, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, you are absolutely right, but as the article explains: both species are exactley the same in appearance and the two are only identifiable by microscopic research. Hence: the picture can also be used for the proverai article. I did add an image caption to explain the other species is figured. I hope that makes sense. Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:13, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
After adding that extra text it's OK with me. - Robotje (talk) 11:47, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

{{Lepidoptera}}[edit]

Hi, just today I have seen that you removed the above template from all of the Lepidoptera related articles. I would like to know the purpose behind it because it does exist in various articles on mammals. Like for example, majority of bats and shrews have them: Gobi big brown bat and Etruscan shrew, and I followed their example. Or project Lepidoptera is different in that regard? If so, why were there {{Lepidoptera}}, {{Coleoptera}} being developed long before I began using them???--Mishae (talk) 16:57, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

The examples you mention have a template linking to related species, while the Lepidoptera template links to the families. The template was made to browse between families, not from species to families. Ruigeroeland (talk) 18:45, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Here what was my idea behind it: see, user who doesn't want to read about the families, can click on that template which will transfer him to which ever sub family he/she wants. So, which template can I use if any? Because project mammals uses them and they definitely were developed for a reason (otherwise they would have been nominated for deletion). As far as you saying goes: The template was made to browse between families, not from species to families. Hmm, isn't that what Gobi big brown bat look like? Like, its a species which is linked to subfamily and with Etruscan shrew its species that are linked to families through order template. Same thing with Bearded seal and Wild boars they are also species with order templates. So, my Lepidoptera and Coleoptera templates are orders as well, not families.--Mishae (talk) 22:33, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
There is a difference, the mammal templates list all species within the orders, families and genera, while the Lepidoptera template only lists the families, not the species. Listing the Lepidoptera template is not wrong, but it is not that useful in my opinion. For example: it would be the same as listing a template about the countries of Africa under a village in Nigeria. Ruigeroeland (talk) 06:49, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
So there is no template to use when it comes to Lepidoptera? Thanks for explanation.--Mishae (talk) 22:38, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Not really. You made templates for the species within a genus some time ago, that would be a better solution. However: Since taxanomy of insects changes so much, it would be hard to keep these up to date. I think it would be wise not to add templates to species articles. There is enough other work to do besides making and adding these templates. Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 06:48, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello again![edit]

Hello! Figured I'd let you know that I intend to do some serious background/clean-up related work on Lepidoptera-related articles again, albeit in-depth enough that it's probably going to stretch over a few months. (Might do some content work too, if I feel up for it, but not as structurized as I intend to do the gnomish stuff).

I've made myself a "nice" checklist of stuff to check while combing through every article in the Lepidopterology category (in other words, everything in Category:Lepidoptera + a few hundred lepidopterists), but I figured that as you're basically the nr. 1 guy when it comes to Lepidoptera-related work here, you could perhaps look through it and see if there are any obvious things I've forgotten to list there, especially because if so, I'd rather find out now, when I only have a dozen articles to back-track through, rather than later on, when that's a few hundred to over a thousand. User:AddWittyNameHere/Lepidoptera_to-do_list is where the list can be found, by the way. Have a nice day, AddWittyNameHere (talk) 00:56, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Wow! That is very much work you are getting yourself into. You might add to do the list: Add category 'Moths described in xxxx' (add year) or (if it is a butterfly), 'Insects described in xxxx' if these categories are missing. Furthermore, I think you pretty much covered it all...! Ruigeroeland (talk) 06:34, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, it's a shitload (pardon my French) of work, but it needs to be done anyway, and if I'm going to do it, may as well do it well and structured, rather than the an-article-here-and-and-article-there-in-between-vandal-fighting approach I've been using so far. Will note that specific point down (I do believe I have a general "check categories"-point in it, but those are exactly the kind of categories I'd have overlooked. Speaking of categories, the Lepidoptera categorization structure really should be cleaned up sometime. No good reason for the category "Lists of moths and butterflies of the United States" to be present in all of the following trees:
  • Butterflies and moths by region=>Lists of butterflies by location;
  • Butterflies and moths by region=>Lists of moths by location;
  • Butterflies and moths by region=>Butterflies and moths of North America;
    • Butterflies and moths by region=>Butterflies and moths of North America=>Butterflies of the United States;
  • Butterflies=>Butterflies by country=>Butterflies of the United States;
  • Lepidoptera by country=>Butterflies by country=>Butterflies of the United States;
  • Lists of Lepidoptera=>Lists of butterflies=>Lists of butterflies by location;
  • Lists of Lepidoptera=>Lists of moths=>Lists of moths by location;
  • Moths=>Lists of moths=>Lists of moths by location.

One of the more spurious examples, sure, but it does show how messy the category structure is, eh? Some specific articles are even worse, from top of my head. Oh well, let's start with multi-month (ironically almost mistyped that as multi-moth) project #1 before thinking about projects #2 and #3. AddWittyNameHere (talk) 06:58, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, the categories are a mess. I usually only add the taxonomy cat (family, subfamily, tribe or genus) and the year cat myself, but others have added various others over time, and all use other formats. Ruigeroeland (talk) 07:02, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Crambidae coverage.[edit]

Greetings, Ruigeroeland! I'm just notifying you now, so you don't panic ;) when you see the latest crambid pages; I've made them ahead of time for the next week and a few days.
