The word abdomen links to the abdomen of the human body - thus does not seem appropriate or clear. TeunSpaans 17:31, 26 September 2005 (UTC)


Minet and Scoble (in Kristensen) do not list Orthostixinae. Hausmann (Geometridae of Europe) does. Any opinions on deleting Orthostixinae? Satyrium 21:59, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Taxobox Image[edit]

I have replaced the image of the "inchworm" with a documented specimen of Geometrid adult moth, which is, after all, the subject heading. Nickrz (talk) 14:08, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Redirect to Geometridae[edit]

I intend to redirect this title to "Geometridae", that being the family taxon. I will rewrite the lead paragraph to incorporate the common names for the adults and caterpillars. Pending discussion, of course. Nickrz (talk) 05:04, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Photo of an inchworm[edit]

Someone want to add one? Its kinda silly that these creatures are named after their "inchworm" larva and yet there's no photo of one. Famartin (talk) 11:23, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
