Several articles need attention...[edit]


I did some editing on the page of king cobra and venomous snakes, adding some information and removing some old contents. I had tried to put my suggestions on the talk page of the king cobra article before I started my editing. However, no one gave any response. I'm not sure if my edition is appropriate so I would like to have your comments here so that I can ensure the quality of the articles. Please have a look at those pages if you have time.

Thanks a lot !

Cnemaspis Girii or girii?[edit]

There's a new stub at Cnemaspis Girii; the list in Cnemaspis includes "C. girii", and Googling shows me a mixture of "Girii" and "girii". Some expert in the area might be able to resolve whether it's capital "G" or lower-case "g" here? PamD 22:06, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

I note we've got a Dendrelaphis girii. PamD 22:12, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
The correct spelling, regardless of how it is presented in popular press articles, is Cnemaspis girii (in animals the specific epithet is always lowercase, even if derived from a proper noun). I have moved the article to the correct case.--Animalparty-- (talk) 23:54, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks - I knew there'd be a helpful expert around here.PamD 05:58, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Merger discussion[edit]

I have started a merger discussion as I suspect that we have two separate articles about the same species of frog. Any constructive comments you are willing to provide there would be greatly appreciated. Neelix (talk) 19:02, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
