Criteria for inclusion[edit]

See WP:Notability.

Names and titles[edit]

See WP:Naming conventions (fauna).

Article contents[edit]

The following items are desirable for articles of all levels, although the detail will vary depending on several factors. These items do not need to be separated into distinct sections; text should flow in continuous prose so far as possible. The order this information is included is also relatively unimportant, although the order listed is generally preferred.

  • Description (physical, behavioral) - what makes this (group of) critter(s) different from its close relatives? Include here evidence about cognitive capacities.
  • Habitat - where does it live? how broadly does it roam? maps are good
  • Cultural, Religious, Economic, etc. Importance - what impact has it had on humans? Include here use for experimental purposes that do not relate to other headings.
  • Classification - how does it fit into the tree of life?

Task list and progress[edit]

  1. Create article for each Family Whew!
  2. Ensure all Family articles are taxonomically consistent
    1. Ensure all articles between the Order and Family rank are taxonomically consistent
    2. Ensure all articles between Family and Genus rank are taxonomically consistent
  3. Create articles for all Species and for needed Genera
    1. Create links for all species articles on appropriate articles
    2. Create lists of uncreated articles to add to category pages:
      1. general cephalopod articles
      2. bobtail squid articles
      3. cuttlefish articles
      4. squid articles
      5. octopus articles

Taxonomy and references[edit]

Cephalopod taxonomy is by no means fully known or agreed upon. The following references are currently being used for this Project. See the discussion for other possibilities.

Use a taxobox[edit]

In general, cephalopod entries should have taxobox. This is something we have inherited from the Tree of Life WikiProject. There are many examples there to look at.

There are several example cephalopod taxoboxes, suitable for cut and paste insertion into entries:

Talk pages[edit]

Place {{CephalopodTalk}} at the top of an article's talk page. This will help to direct editors to this page for guidance.

Recent articles[edit]
