    Michelle Marshall commented on "Epinephelus adscensionis":

    This current taxon is associated with an old taxon from Bloch: "Perca maculata". I found proceedings in the National Museum that links it to this taxon. The problem is that "Perca maculata" was also created by Forster in 1844, and it links to another species entirely.

    I saw your activity on the staghorn fern page and thought you might be able to answer a question I have. When looking at staghorn fern spores under the microscope there are normal sporangia but there are also these star shaped objects attached to the sporangia. I've tried everywhere but can't seem to find any information on it. If you know what they could be it would be helpful. Thanks!

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "Distribution":

    I don't think it's confusing it with Leucophaeus atricilla - it is just being parochial, and only mentioning the 0.0001% of the species' range that matters to the Great God North America, the Only Part of the World That Exists (in their viewpoint!). It is correct that Chroicocephalus ridibundus does occur as a scarce winter visitor in the area mentioned; the problem lies in their failure to acknowledge that the rest of the world exists ;-)

    There is a more accurate map showing species range under the maps tab.

    Quite right. More recent data from the same source reflects the distribution you describe (http://eol.org/pages/1049595/data#data_point_42037215) but this Note has yet to be removed

    Abigail Parker commented on "Distribution":

    Larus ridibundus is Eurasian in distribution. This citation seems to be confusing it with Leucophaeus atricilla.

    JohelChaves commented on "Katja Schulz":

    H Katja, a quick question. There is a minor error (comma misplaced in a number) in one of the articles provided by one of my former student about 2 years ago (Scorpiones by Cassandra Owen). I tried to correct the error but that article was uploaded (by me) using edulifedesks, which is no longer used by EOL. So, I no longer have access to this article. How could I (or someone else) fix this issue? Thanks.

    @Markus Ankenbrand: It should be done already, but there was some mistake somewhere and I think it is just waiting to be deployed: https://github.com/EOL/tramea/issues/147

    Markus Ankenbrand commented on "EOL API Discussion Group":

    Is it planned to add the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to the EOL API to allow cross-origin HTTP requests? It would be really handy to create dynamic pages for organisms with content from EOL. I'm aware that I can do this with PHP on the server side but I'd prefer using AJAX on the client side.

    @Starri Heidmarsson: The quick answer is "something changed that broke them". We're working on a fix.
