Moving[edit]

This article is about the species Anomalopteryx didiformis; however it is called Anomalepteryx. I propose that we move Anomalepteryx to anomalepteryx didiformis. Discuss awsy. speednat (talk) 23:38, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

The genus is monotypic. See talk at Darwinius: [1] FunkMonk (talk) 00:11, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Anomalopteryx didifornisAnomalopteryx didiformis — - Spelled incorrectly (my bad), I was moving it originally due to the fact that it is about a species but titled for the genera --speednat (talk) 00:59, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

It seems that there is only one species, the type species. As with other palaeontology and dinosaur articles, articles discussing only one genera are typically named after the genus, not the species. The article should be backed to the genus level. --Spotty 11222 01:05, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
As I mentioned already, this article should be named after the genus. Only move it if there is consensus for a move. I have moved it back. FunkMonk (talk) 01:18, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

As it now stands, the proposal is AnomalopteryxAnomalopteryx didiformis.

  • Oppose — For a monotypic genus, the Wikipedia convention is to use the genus name as the page name. --Una Smith (talk) 05:22, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose I guess mark this up as "my bad". First, I didn't look hard enough to see that it was monotypic, and second, per the guidelines on moves, I thought it was a non-controversial move. Again --- my bad. speednat (talk) 04:58, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
