Many thanks.All are correct.I imagine more redirects are likely since the blues are oversplit Best regards Notafly (talk) 11:54, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

disambig templates[edit]

Hi! I think the taxonomy templates work like this, for disambiguation. I'll use Lithocharis as an example.

  • If there's a template "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" that is used for lepidoptera, then there would need to be another such as "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis (beetle)" if one was needed for the beetle. The template name is used only for template disambiguation. The template name (the part after the slash, "Lithocharis" or "Lithocharis (beetle)") is used in the Speciesbox or Automatic taxobox. It doesn't necessarily have to be the same as the article name (but it might be less confusing that way.)
  • If there's an article "Lithocharis" and an article "Lithocharis (beetle)", you can use the template "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" for either one by specifying either "Lithocharis" or "Lithocharis (beetle)|Lithocharis" in the template's link field. In this case, if you want to use it for the beetle, the name "Lithocharis (beetle)" should not appear in the Speciesbox or Automatic taxobox, only "Lithocharis". The name in the Speciesbox or Automatic taxobox is for the template, not the article.
  • It's not unusual to need a disambiguation name for both the template and article, in which case you need two templates (such as "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" and "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis (beetle)", and in the link fields "Lithocharis" in one and "Lithocharis (beetle)|Lithocharis" in the other

Since there's not currently a template used for the lepidoptera Lithocharis, there really only needs to be one template, not both "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis" and "template:taxonomy/Lithocharis (beetle)"

...and, of course, I could be wrong on any of this. It's easy to get mixed up! Bob Webster (talk) 00:50, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

@Bob: I am not comfortable at all with the automatic taxoboxes system. I saw that there was a link from the beetle species Lithocharis ochracea to its genus which went in error to the moth genus Euparyphasma. I was pleased enough with myself that I was able to change that to a red link instead of the error. I would be in your debt if you could clean up after me as you described above. I am not now able to figure it out for myself. Thank you,  SchreiberBike | ⌨  04:09, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
It's all straight now (I think). Everything you did was correct from a content viewpoint, it just left an extra unused template file. I will point out that, while my explanation seemed perfectly clear when I wrote it, it sure is convoluted now!
I'm happy to help with any template stuff I can. Feel free to let me know if you need anything or notice anything wrong. Bob Webster (talk) 04:53, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks and keep up the good work.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  14:37, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
