Maybe you could add info about evolution and classification of the insect. I'm sure you can find something like an explanation of the name behind the beetle. Also there really isn't much in the behavior section. Most of it is focused on eusociality.Dudas 91 (talk) 21:36, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
Edits on Behavior Section
I have made edits to this page in terms of grammar and sentence structure. I also added some links where appropriate. I changed A. incompertus to Austroplatypus incompertus because Wikipedia prefers that all species names be the same throughout the paper.

- Is there a source for the first paragraph under ‘Eusociality’
- In the fourth paragraph under “hypotheses for evolution of eusociality,” the citation for (12%) should be at end of sentence
- Add info to talk page.
Peer Review Oct 2013
The page seems to have broad facts about Austroplatypus incompertus and is well laid out for the most part. The Behavior section seems to be lacking in depth. It really only talks about eusociality and much of that is rather unspecific to A. incompertus. It’s probably better to link to the Eusociality Wikipedia page than write about eusociality in very general terms on an organism specific page. It would be nice to add info about foraging behavior or nest foundation and nest building. Those often tend to be quite specific to ants and often very distinctive.Dudas 91 (talk) 23:04, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
I added hyperlinks and added information to the section on eusociality. I also rearranged the sections to make the article more coherent. This article could definitely use some more pictures, but I recognize that that is difficult to do due to copyright laws. Rosemaryshanley (talk) 00:32, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
"This has led to the hypothesis that eusociality in colonies with a single female gamergate assists in maximizing offspring of a related individual."
I could be wrong, but 'female gamergate' seems out of place, perhaps a case of vandalism. Can we remove the word gamergate, so that the sentence makes sense? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:35, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
