Taxonomy: For all marine species, Project Gastropods uses the taxonomy in the online database WoRMS. When starting a new article, do not use sources of taxonomic information that predate the 2005 revision for all gastropod groups. If you need help with any aspect of an article, please leave a note at the Project talk page.
This article has a long list of species with individual pages indicated, most of which contain no specific information, which is sorely needed. Anybody?. Might try some myself when I have time. Also, are the original authors and dates really needed since they are (should be) given in the respective pages. J.H.McDonnell (talk)
Yes the author and dates are an important part of citing a species, among other things it allows someone in-the-know to realize that a cite hasn't been updated after a taxonomic change. Secondly, lots of information in the Wikipedia can be found in the sources or the links, some electronic, some not, that alone doesn't mean that the information shouldn't be in an article. Also, not all species have articles in the Wikipedia. Yes, it looks a little messy. Some articles put this kind of thing in tables or use a smaller typeface for the author and date. --Bejnar (talk) 04:17, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
