Moved the ulidiids (Homalocephala texensis) to their own concept
Split this from Ortalis guttata, a bird.
For some odd reason, Otites guttata, the bird, and Ortalis guttata, the fly, are listed as synonyms by CoL??? Split the flies to their own concept.
Merged in Loxodonta africana cyclotis from iNat
Merged Neopanope texana with Dyspanopeus texanus. There seems to be some confusion about these two names on WoRMS
Split this lichen concept from the beetle concept
Moved the lichen HE to their own concept
Split this concept off Rhynchoglossum, a plant genus that has Klugia as one of its synonyms.
Split the fly genus (Klugia) into its own page. It was included here because of the Rhynchoglossum/Klugia synonymy in plants.
Merge Aegeria aureopurpura = bolli (NMNH Entomology) with Carmenta bassiformis.
Split the fly genus into a separate page.
Merged in misspelled "Homocorpis" HE from CoL
Removed protists & bryozoans from this concept. Untrusted common name "Flagellated Protozoans." Pulled in some stray plant genus HEs from the Euglenozoa concept!!!
Merged ITIS Euglenophycota into this concept. Removed paleodb Mastigophora, which is some weird cephalopod concept.
Merged in a stray WoRMS HE that had landed on the bryophyte genus
Merge in misspelled "Sesiidae" from NMNH Entomology
Merged in a couple of stray HEs from ITIS & Flickr. There was already an ITIS HE in this concept for a synonym (P. raripes), but I didn't get the "provider wants to keep those separate" warning.
Merged in "4 Hhv-4) " from EOL China
Moved all the plant genus HEs to their own concept
Moved all the plant genus HEs here from the fish genus
Moved the plant genus HEs to their own concept.
Merged in the Rubiaceae genus Scandentia
Removed the plant genus HEs from this concept 29 May 2013. Apparently, Patrick had already tried to do this a while ago.
Split these fungi HEs from the salticid genus concept
Telamonia (Fr.) Wünsche 1877 is a genus of Fungus that is considered a synonym for the mega-genus Cortinarius by MycoBank and Index Fungorum. However, I understand it is well supported as an independent sister genus of Cortinarius by various genetic analyses. However, it is also a genus of jumping spiders. -- Move the fungi to a separate concept. Currently we appear to only have a single page which contains images both of jumping spiders and Cortinarii.
Moved the ground beetle genus Tachymenis MOTSCHULSKY 1862 here.
The snake genus Tachymenis WIEGMANN 1835 and its junior homonym, the ground beetle genus Tachymenis MOTSCHULSKY 1862 were mixed here! The valid name for the latter is Mioptachys BATES 1882. Moved the carabid HE to the Mioptachys concept.
split & merge
Removed this fungus from the snail concept
Split Septaria Fr., 1819, a fungus, from Septaria Ferussac, 1807, a snail.
Merged Viola canina subsp. montana & Viola montana concepts
Merged in a couple of misspelled "Tritonia crocosmiflora" HEs. That were in the Tritonia nudibranch concept!
Moved a whole bunch of plants over to the monocot concept.
Merged in a whole bunch of HEs that had landed on the nudibranch concept
Merged in Camelus ferus f. bactriana from Zoo Zürich
Merged in Ovis aries aries ouessant from Zoo Zürich
Merged in Callosciurus prévosti HE from Zoo Zürich
Merged in a stray Dacnis sp. HE from Zoo Zürich collection
Merged in Ardeola ibis from Zoo Zürich collection
Moved domesticus forms to separate concept.
Merged in a couple of Otocolobus manul manul HEs
Images of this species show up in the Zygaena (moth) gallery, apparently because of synonym listings from FishWise Pro. We need to disconnect the fish synonym from the moth genus, but I don't currently see a way to do this using the taxon concept management tools. -- Apparently fixed with the revision of the FishWise Pro connector.
Moved Ipomoea tiliacea to the Ipomoea tiliacea species concept & split Ipomoea simplex/bolusiana to its own page.
Merged in a bunch of HEs that had landed on the I. batatas concept.
Merged in a stray duplicate HE from NCBI.
Removed Cicada nigropunctata Goeze, 1778
Split this HE from Eupteryx atropunctata. Cicada nigropunctata Schrank, 1781 is a synonym of Eupteryx atropunctata. This hierarchy entry is for Cicada nigropunctata Goeze, 1778, which ITIS lists as valid.
Merged in Mochocidae Jordan 1923
Merged Megapomponia imperatoria with synonym Pomponia imperatoria
Moved a whole bunch of Venerupis decussata HEs & synonyms over to the Venerupis decussata concept.
As pointed out by Valter Jacinto, Ruditapes decussatus is a synonym of Venerupis decussata 3048644, as confirmed by numerous sources. --- Pulled in a whole bunch of HEs from the Lajonkairia lajonkairii concept.
