Local Area[edit]

The local area of the Oregon High Desert Grotto is Central Oregon. The Oregon High Desert Grotto is involved with many projects beyond this area, including the Oregon Caves National Monument in the far southwest portion of the state (more than 6 hours away). In addition to this, the grotto is involved in Northern California in Lava Beds National Monument (more than 4 hours away).

The significance of this is the conservation and restoration of ecological, biological, geological, and archaeological systems and resources at those sites. I've got the references in place. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Leitmotiv (talkcontribs) 00:02, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Taracus marchingtoni[edit]

Of the two references given for the mention of Taracus marchingtoni, one is a dead link and the other an article by the claim's (human) subject in a journal edited by a major contributor to this Wikipedia page. Google finds no mention of the species, other than those attributable to this article or that contributor's organisation's website and Wikispecies does not list it. Do we have a reliable, third-party reference? Or is it perhaps a synonym for a species known by another name, or a name that was never officially adopted?

I can't find anything in Google Books, Google Scholar, Google, or Web of Knowledge. Invertebrates are fairly often described in highly obscure journals, though, so there is a chance this species was indeed named somewhere. I'd remove the text unless a more reliable source is produced. Ucucha (talk) 17:49, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
