The result of the move request was: page moved. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 10:42, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Pholidichthys leucotaenia → Pholidichthys — Should this page be moved to the plain genus name, as there is only one species (monotypy)? Most living monotypic genera not at common names (none exist here) are at the full specie title, and Wikipedia:Naming conventions (fauna) still advises this, but genus names seem to be favoured now (see Talk:Caecilita). —innotata (Talk • Contribs) 00:12, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
- Support. The text at WP:NC (fauna) is vague and self-contradictory, and may well have been intended to favor moves such as the one proposed. In any case, this is in line with current practice. Ucucha 02:15, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
- Well, WP:NC (fauna) now unambiguously supports this move; I changed it. Ucucha 02:24, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
