When used by itself:

Usage

  • Use this rcat for any redirect that is an alternative scientific name of an organism and targets the scientific name used as the title of the Wikipedia article (which should be the scientific name accepted as correct by reliable sources).
  • An unnamed parameter may be used to specify more precisely the kind of organism involved and to put the article in the appropriate subcategory. For example, {{R from alternative scientific name|fungus}} sorts the redirect to Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of fungi.
Parameters currently supported and the resulting categories are:
Switch parameters supported
Parameter Category
crustacean Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of crustaceans
fish Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of fish
fungus Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of fungi
insect Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of insects
plant Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of plants
reptile Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of reptiles
spider Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names of spiders
(none) Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names

Unrecognized switch parameters will place the page into the category Category:Redirects from alternative scientific names using unknown values for parameter 1

  • Add this rcat to a redirect page (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from alternative scientific name}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
Template {{Rcat shell}} is an alias for the Redirect category shell template, which may be used to add as many appropriate rcats as needed, usually from one to seven, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R from alternative scientific name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
The second parameter, |2=, may be used if the redirect is not printworthy in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from alternative scientific name|2=unprintworthy}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
or the 2= may be omitted if the first parameter is empty:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from alternative scientific name||unprintworthy}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
and if used by itself:
{{R from alternative scientific name||unprintworthy}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
Use of the 2nd parameter subdues the Printworthy redirects category and populates Category:Unprintworthy redirects.
