Comments[edit]

  • "kl." is not a species name nor part of one, so it must not be capitalized. I'll fix this in a minute.
  • Let's see… the English language comes from Europe. Rana clamitans is exclusively North American. How can "green frog" possibly be incorrect for Rana synklepton esculenta?
  • Bad article in general. Highly incomplete. Someone with time on their hands, please… :-}

Contradictions with German Wikipedia article[edit]

The corresponding German article says that there are, in fact, pure edible frog populations, and that they are the norm in many areas. It goes on to say that some edible frogs are triploid, having a complete set of chromosomes of one parent species and half a set of the other. And that these special triploid edible frogs, and not pure parent species animals (which are much rarer anyway) are the key individuals in procreation. If that (sourced) info is correct, this article is plain wrong and needs to be fixed. -- 92.229.143.190 (talk) 01:01, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Pelophylax esculentus genetics/reproduction is weird (hence the denotation as a klepton, which is more than just a fertile hybrid). IIRC, there is also more than one cytotype. We need a summary based on the primary literature. Lavateraguy (talk) 18:33, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Wrong citations?[edit]

I don't see anything about Pelophylax esculentus either in the Amphibian Species of the World Online Reference or in the Frost et al. paper cited. Could this be confusion with Pyxicephalus edulis? Nadiatalent (talk) 19:13, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

– Invert the redirections as the consensus and guidelines recommend not to capitalise the common (vernacular) names of species. See Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#Bird common name decapitalisation and Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Animals, plants, and other organisms. Coreyemotela (talk) 15:18, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Support a speedy close Red Slash 01:08, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment "Edible frog" is a rather poor name, and seemingly representing WP:systematic bias. Various frog species are eaten across the globe by humans, and most frogs have predators, so are edible by some creature or other, or are scavenged, have parasites, or are decomposed and thus "eaten" if they don't have predators. -- 65.94.171.206 (talk) 04:07, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
