But either direction would work, and the title can be changed/moved anytime anyway, so I've changed the templates to direction-agnostic. :) --Quiddity 00:59, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Disagree. The article about the species may be poor, but that doesn't mean it should be merged with something else. Distinct species merit their own article! BalthCat 02:01, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
But the article isn't named after the species. Move the species material into a new entomology stub article lac insect and the lac information into shellac. Bendž|Ť 16:48, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
I agree. Turn the lac article into a subsection of shellac, and have lac redirect directly to that subsection. Less redundancy, and just as useful. There should be a separate article on lac-secreting insects, which should be linked from the subsection on lac and in shellac more generally -- but that material doesn't seem to exist at all yet.

Shellac is what I searched for; I had never heard of the insect Lac. I think that vastly more people would make the same search that I did, rather than for the insect Lac. A sub-section on the insect that makes shellac is interesting and appropriate.Jdlyall
Disagree with merge. Lac is also the source of lac dye, which doesn't belong on the shellac page. It is better to leave this separate. Crypticfirefly 02:19, 13 November 2007 (UTC)


From the sources I'm finding, the only difference between lac and shellac is that shellac has been refined. I don't know how I feel about reorganization, but I do feel that so long as shellac is a separate article, this article should only mention shellac in WP:SUMMARY style. Concerning the lac insect, Banglapedia is a very informative source; I'll try to work it into the article. -Verdatum (talk) 19:12, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
