See Taxon Clean-Up To Do List for a list of tasks to tackle. Tasks that have been initiated by have not yet finished or did not execute properly should be posted to Taxon Clean-Up Tasks With Pending Issues.
Merged in a couple of Tychius squamulatus HEs with different author information.
Merged in a bunch of Tychius junceus HEs with different author information, as well as Tychius haematopus and Tychius flavicollis.
Merged in a stray CoL HE
Merged in a Tychius sharpi HE with different author information.
Merged in a bunch of Tychius meliloti HEs with different author information.
Merged in a bunch of Tychius picirostris with different author information as well as Miccotrogus picirostris.
Merged in all CoL Tychius quinquepunctatus although they have different author names. Not clear where these map to. Linne is apparently the correct authority, but CoL doesn't even have that. Links to source are broken on CoL and search at WTaxa gets zip. Also merged in Aoromius quinquepunctatus.
Merged Apion violaceum Kirby with Perapion violaceum
Merged Ischnopterapion virens & Apion virens
Merged Pseudoprotapion astragali with Apion astragali.
Merged in Apion violaceum Gyllenhal: http://eunis.eea.europa.eu/species/265072
Appears on media tab for fungi. -- Homonym issue, fixed.
Split this fungal HEs from the gastropod concept.
Moved the fungal genus HEs to their own concept.
Appears in media tag for amoeba http://eol.org/pages/3121394 -- This was due to synonym/homonym confusion between a protist & snail genus. Fixed now.
Merged in a Margarites HE from the snail genus: http://paleobiodb.org/cgi-bin/bridge.pl?a=basicTaxonInfo&taxon_no=252164
Split 2 Margarita concepts from this page: a protist genus and a plant genus. Also moved a fossil cephalopod genus HE (Margarites) to Hoplotropites: http://paleobiodb.org/cgi-bin/bridge.pl?a=basicTaxonInfo&taxon_no=252164 Some of these will probably be labile, so we need to keep a watch on them.
Split this from the snail genus.
Merged in Cucurbita pepo ssp ovifera var ozarkana
Merged in Alisma plantago aquatica
Merged in Agrostis hyemalis var. hyemalis: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/tro-25517564
Merged in a Curculionidae HE from CoL.
Merged in a bug HE from the beetle concept.
Merged in a chrysomelid HE from the invalid weevil concept.
Merged in a bunch of moth HEs from the plant concept & pseudo-binomials from BOLD. Moved Acharia horrida HEs to their own species concept.
Merged in a couple of plant HEs from the bird concept & moved a Newtonia (Asteraceae) HE to the Distephanus concept: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/gcc-121554
Split these plant HEs from the Chromista concept & merged in a Newtonia (Asteraceae) HE from the Newtonia (Fabaceae) concept: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/gcc-121554
Moved the plant HEs to their own concept. This concept is still messy due to problems with the Mineralogy resource. Except that this will fix itself once the resource is reloaded.
This page exists only because of misspelling scientific name, should be loddigesii. -- Requested that spelling be fixed at the source. -- No response, removed from group. -- Taxon is gone now.
Found this in the Odonata media gallery. This was due to bad taxonavigation data from a Wikimedia Commons gallery. Fixed at the source. Hopefully, it will fix itself on EOL with the next harvest. -- Looks like it's fixed now.
A bogus Wikimedia Commons hierarchy put this species in Odonata. Fixed at source, waiting for resource to update. -- Looks like it's fixed now.
Moved all the moth HEs over to the moth genus concept, Acharia horrida pseudo binomials to the species concept. -- Moved another moth HE (without a hierarchy) in May 2014. Required a reindex to get rid of all the moth images.
This was a bogus name from a bogus hierarchy caused by an import problem. -- Fixed.
Moved a couple of plant HEs to the plant genus.
Merged in a couple of HE from the animal genus.
Amoebae is not a taxonomic group, but the common name for the Amoebozoa. In addition, this picture is not relevant anyway, as it refers to an Excavate https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primary_amoebic_meningoencephalitis, not a true amoeba. -- Merged the HE with Amoebozoa, moved taxon association to Naegleria.
I'm surprised that there isn't a better classification for this since it's common in N. Am. although evidently many confusing species of Pepsis so maybe this is all the classification there is and we can't do anything about it? Is there a way we can better link this to the Pepsis genus page? http://eol.org/pages/3832454 I see the new cut/paste option on the classification tab now but don't know how this is used - is there documentation for this that I've missed? Thanks, Katja -- Selected the iNaturalist classification as the preferred one for Pepsis thisbe, so the full hierarchy now shows in the classification browser.
Merged in a synonym with a different genus name.
