Merged in a whole bunch of HEs that had landed on the nudibranch concept
Merged in Callosciurus prévosti HE from Zoo Zürich
Merged in a stray Dacnis sp. HE 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.
As pointed out by Valter Jacinto, Venerupis senegalensis is a synonym of V. corrugata 395909 (see, e.g., http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=146955 -- Merged V. senegalensis with V. corrugata concept.
Separated this mollusk genus from the plant genus
When you search for this species you get 5 differen species pages all with the exact same name as a result. --- The first hit is the actual species page, the other ones are Toxoplasma gondii strains that we get from NCBI. I hesitate to merge all of these strains with the species concept, especially since some of them are slated for whole genome sequencing, e.g.: http://genomesonline.org/cgi-bin/GOLD/bin/GOLDCards.cgi?goldstamp=Gi10783 So at some point this strain may actually turn into something that's worth having a taxon page for.
Aporrhais pespelicanis is a synonym of Aporrhais pespelecani. Merged the two concepts & pulled in pes-pelecani HE from BHL & pespelicani albida from SI IZ.
Merged in Priapula from paleoDB
This concept has both the cicadellid and its virus. -- resolved.
Merged in Prunus insititia Walter: http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/29952771
Merged in Propylaea quatuordecimpunctata HEs.
Removed a couple of genus HEs from this species concept.
Merged in a Nomenclator Zoologicus genus HE that had landed on the Sorsogona prionota concept.
Merged in a couple of Platycephalus HEs that had landed on the Sorsogona prionota concept.
Merged in Lymnaea palustris HEs split from the Stagnicola corvus concept.
Split Lymnaea palustris HEs from Stagnicola corvus and moved them to Stagnicola palustris.
split & merge
Belus pictirostris is a synonym of Rhinotia pictirostris or vice versa. Merged the two HEs.
Merged stray Tritical HE from CoL with X Triticosecale
Merged in a bunch of grass HE from the porcupine concept.
Removed diatoms, grasses & fungi from this concept.
Split this fungi HE from the mammal concept.
Genus Epinephelus HE pulled all Epinephelus species into the media tab of this one. Moved it to the genus concept. Check to make sure media collection cleans up. It currently has over 700 images. Update: 23 Feb13: HE move has worked, media gallery now down to 346, but still plenty of Epinephelus species that don't belong here. Requested reindex. Requested another reindex 18 Mar. Still 343 media files in collection. May need to jirafy this one. May 2012: Finally! Every image in this media collection is of this species!
Merged in some HEs that had landed on the crustacean concept. Page is clean May 2013
Moved a moth HE from Wikipedia in this concept. Moth Wikipedia article is still in Detail tab, although it is attached to the correct HE, which has moved elsewhere. Requesting a reindex. Page is clean May 2013
Need to remove the stone fly names from the moth concept. First attempt failed due to oops error. Concept is now locked. Tried again. Stone fly HEs are now gone. Media collection cleaned up except for 2 ADW images that were associated with Plecoptera. Untrusted and re-associated with order. Media tab is now clean, but Overview tab still full of stone fly content. Requested reindex. Page is clean May 2013.
Moved all plant HEs over to the thistle concept. Make sure hedgehog media collection cleans up once move is finished. Move finished but still lots of thistles in media collection. Requesting a reindex 19 Mar 13. Media collection clean, May 2013.
Split off 2 fish HEs (FishWisePro, OBIS) into a separate page. One new page created for FishWisePro HE. OBIS HE goes missing. -- After FishWisePro fix: cannot find fish Turdus HEs. Bird concept looks ok now.
Split this HE off the waterbears concept. Some but not all media have moved here: reindex again. Media collection clean, May 2013
Crocus caeruleus is a synonym for Crocus vernus subsp. albiflorus. -- Both names are already in concept. Selected classification with subspecies as the preferred one.
Moved in a bunch of plant HEs from the lep concept.
Moved a bunch of plant HEs over to the plant concept.
Merged in stray genus HE from BioLib.cz
Merged in a duplicate HE from paleoDB
Merged in Teuthidodrilus sp. from SERPENT resource
