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 bunch of stray HEs from CoL & IRMNG
Merged in Eucoleus aerophilus and a couple of stray Capillaria aerophila HEs
Moved a couple of plant HEs to the plant genus.
Merged in a couple of plant HEs from the plant genus.
Merged in a couple of stray Prunus persica (L.) Siebold & Zucc. HEs.
Merged Merulius spathularius, Guepinia spathularia, and Dacryopinax spathularia
Merged Oecanthinae & Oecanthidae
Mesoacidalia aglaja is a synonym of Argynnis aglaja. Merged.
Merged in a duplicate HE from paleodb
Merged in a couple of stray HEs.
Moved a bunch of plant HEs to the plant genus.
Merged in a bunch of plant HEs from the fish concept.
Split these protist HEs from the cicada genus.
Moved the protist HEs to their own concept.
Choanoflagellida and Choanozoa are NOT synonyms and must be split. This is a high priority because Choanoflagellida is supposed to be on the RHL. When fixing this, please make sure the Brief Summary stays with Choanoflagellida. Split for a second time Sep 2014. Problem is that NCBI has Choanozoa listed as a synonym of Choanoflagellida.
Moved all Choanoflagellida HE from Choanozoa to Choanomonada. NCBI has listed Choanozoa as a synonym of Choanoflagellida, so there is a danger that the two taxa may get merged again.
Removed brachiopod genus HEs. Back together Sep 2014. Splitting again.
Genus links to a fish genus, http://eol.org/pages/24870/ -- Muraenosaurus is both a plesiopod genus and a synonym for a fish genus. -- These concepts have now been separated.
Separated this Plesiosaur concept from the fish genus Nettastoma which has Muraenosaurus as one of its synonyms.
Merged in a couple of HEs from the Nettastoma fish concept, which has Muraenosaurus, another Plesiosaur, as one of its synonyms.
Moved the plant HEs to their own concept.
Merged in a stray Discover Life HE.
Moved a plant HE to Amphitecna
Merged in Enallagma from the damselfly genus concept: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/search?q=Enallagma
This is an incorrect hierarchy from ispot. It puts a butterfly species in the plant family Ericaceae. Splitting it from the butterfly concept to get the butterfly media out of the Ericaceae.
This is an incorrect hierarchy from ispot. It puts a butterfly genus in the plant family Ericaceae. Splitting it to its own concept to get the butterfly media out of Ericaceae.
Merged in a bunch of plant HEs from the butterfly genus, and moved over a butterfly HE.
Moved ARKive Pieris to its own concept because the genus was placed in Nymphalidae. Moved a bunch of plant HEs to the plant genus, and merged in a butterfly HE from there.
Moved the dance fly to the empidid genus.
Merged in a bunch of HEs from the bogus chironomid genus.
Need to move the moth HEs of children to the moth concepts. -- Done, media collection is clean now, Sep 2014.
Moved a Orgyia leucostigma moth HE to the moth species concept.
Merged in a Orgyia leucostigma HE from the Orgyia leucostigma NPV virus concept.
Merged in Hosta pyramidata: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/kew-100259
Moved Hosta Jacq. HEs from Tropicos to the Cornutia concept: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/search?q=hosta
Merged in Hosta Jacq., a synonym from the Hosta (Plantain-lily) concept.
Split this off a worm concept.
Merged in a Eunica butterfly genus HE from the Eunice polychaete genus.
Moved a Eunica butterfly HE to the butterfly genus.
Moved Papilio HEs from Wikimedia Commons & NMNH Ento here because they put this genus in the wrong family (Nymphalidae). Wikimedia Commons hierarchy should fix itself with the next harvest & can then be moved back to the core Papilio concept.
Split this HE from the pierid genus to get the Pieris images out of the Nymphalidae image collection.
Split Tragosoma harrisii from T. depsarium
Moved Encyclopedia of Marine Life of Britain and Ireland Resource HE from Diplopoda concept here & collected a couple more BOLD HEs from the Diplopoda concept a few weeks later. Sep 2014: merged in a couple more cnidarian HEs from the millipede Siphonophora genus and from the millipede Siphonophorida order.
The aphid HE should be merged with Macrosiphum: http://aphid.speciesfile.org/Common/basic/Taxa.aspx?TaxonNameID=719
Merged with Macrosiphum as requested, but it looks like Siphonophora species are now treated in a whole bunch of genera. Also moved a couple of cnidarian HEs from BOLD over to the Siphonophorae concept. Moved over a couple more cnidarian HEs to the Siphonophorae concept, Sep 2014.
