I didn't even think to check the Integrated Taxonomic Information System, at http://www.itis.gov.
This taxonometric database is the result of a partnership of federal agencies formed to satisfy their mutual needs for scientifically credible taxonomic information. They too concur, so I will make the changes.

  • Comment This FAR has been dormant almost a month. Has anything significant changed? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 03:38, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Well, I've put a great deal of work into an updated article on which I was working offline, and I was getting close to posting it when I had a computer crash a couple weeks ago... you'll notice my contributions fell off a cliff at that time. I'm still a day or two away from from getting the results of the data recovery effort. I'd completely understand if you need to close out the FAR, in which case we'll work to bring it back up through FAC. As I've never done either before, I assume the level of difficulty is the same for passing an FAR as it is to pass an FAC? Grollτech (talk) 03:37, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
There is no pressing need to close the FAR -I will have a look too in the next few days. Casliber (talk · contribs) 05:07, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
sigh - needs alot of work. Grolltech, if you have the energy to prioritise and really get stuck into this, I'll help, but it'd be a tall order. If you don't have the time or inclination, it is no big deal to let it slide and lose its shiny star now. It can easily be worked on later. The main thing required is enthusiasm - I can help crossing all the 't's and dotting the 'i's - as well as fetching references, copyediting etc....Casliber (talk · contribs) 15:40, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
  • If the work is that daunting, wouldn't it be better just to let it be delisted instead of running yourselves ragged trying to keep it FA-class? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 01:18, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
Is there still time? I might be able to find the needed cites and fix the lede within one or two days. LittleJerry (talk) 18:16, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
I added the needed citations and did some paragraph merging. All that's needed is the lede expansion. LittleJerry (talk) 23:43, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
Lede expansion now done. I think all the concerns have been addressed. LittleJerry (talk) 22:51, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
With the new improvements, I say Keep. LittleJerry (talk) 16:37, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
  • I still see a few unsourced statements. Might want to go over it a little more and make sure everything's sourced. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 21:21, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
Fixed. LittleJerry (talk) 23:43, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep, my concerns have been addressed. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 09:16, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
  • I think LittleJerry has steered it into Keep territory. Casliber (talk · contribs) 13:29, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
