    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL API Discussion Group":

    @Hamid Nourashraf: Hi Hamid, we usually have a dump file with all of our name and hierarchy information available. But unfortunately, this service is down right now because we are in the middle of moving our servers to a new location. If you can work with a slightly out of date version, there's one here from February: http://s.si.edu/1DP05dj

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Yan Wong: The problem here may be that the identifier and the image URL have not changed. When an image has the exact same identifier and exact same URL, our harvester assumes that we already have that image. It then just looks at the metadata to see what has changed. Is there anything we could do to change the identifier or url for this image on Wikimedia Commons to force an update?

    @Yan Wong: Hm, appears to be a problem with the Catalogue of Life China hierarchy. We'll look into it.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Genetic Moo":

    @Genetic Moo: Discussions generally happen directly on content (pages, images, collections, etc.). There's also a Discussion Group for general inquiries, an API discussion group, and a Curator Forum.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Bradypodion tavetanum STEINDACHNER 1891":

    @vinsslaurie: Thanks, that article is in the Detail tab of this page. Note that there are several tabs across the top of this page that contain different kinds of information.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Associations":

    Jan Kameníček is correct. Schneckli's article mentions Perca flavescens, Orconectes limosus, and Astacus astacus as POTENTIAL predators, but does not claim that they are "known" predators of this species. He just says that these species occur in the same habitat and are known to prey on aquatic snails in general: "Im Freiland Deutschlands wurde an Fundorten der Gemeinen Kahnschnecke nach Beobachtungen verschiedener user des Aquarienschnecken-Forums neben anderen Wasserschnecken auch Flußkrebse (Orconectes limosus, Astacus astacus) sowie diverse Fischarten (z.B. Perca fluviatilis, Rutilus rutilus) gefunden. Sowohl von den Flußkrebse als auch von den genannten Fischen ist bekannt, daß sie sich auch Wasserschnecken ernähren."

    Katja Schulz commented on "Bradypodion tavetanum STEINDACHNER 1891":

    @vinsslaurie: Both names, Bradypodion tavetanum and Kinyongia tavetana, are treated on this page, and all content we have for this species should be here. Do you have a link to the page where you found additional information?

    I see you already added this to the Octopus bimaculatus page. I'm hiding it from the Octopus bimaculoides page.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Matthew A. Birk: We urgently need to do another ToLWeb harvest, so we can get all of the recent contributions from Dick Young, Michael Vecchione, and collaborators. I'll see if we can get this done within the next few weeks. If you want to help filling gaps in higher level cephalopod pages, you may want to check what's on ToLWeb. All content that is released under a compatible creative commons license should make its way to EOL soon, but we won't be able to import ToLWeb pages that are All Rights Reserved. The license for each page is listed at the bottom, e.g.: http://tolweb.org/Enoploteuthidae/19634#AboutThisPage If you could focus on groups that are either not covered on ToLWeb or have All Rights Reserved pages, that would be great. Thanks for your contributions. Let me know if you need any additional information.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Michаel Frаnkis: The supplier (NBII) is not an active project anymore, so there's nobody on their end to update the data. This was a one-time salvage of the open access portion of their media collection. I didn't realize you could id this image to species. In that case, it may be worth adding a trusted taxon association for J. asheii. The problems with the coordinates are documented in the comments now.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Thanks, I have merged "Juniper sp." with Juniperus and untrusted the image based on the misleading coordinates. We've got tons of Juniperus images.
