    Katja Schulz commented on "Herbarium Specimen Image":

    This is a homonym issue. Haplophyllum is also a millipede genus, and this image shows up on the millipede page. We are in the process of getting this fixed.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Cimelioidea":

    @Kim Mitter: Thanks, I have started to separate these concepts, and I have selected NCBI as the preferred classification on the Cimeliidae and CImelioidea pages. Axiidae/Axioidea are still featured in the Names tab, and they will remain there until the source classifications are updated (we cannot change the data of our content partners). Also it may take a few days for the content to get reindexed on these pages, so for now, we still have shrimp on the moth pages. Turns out that there's also a Axia Ferguson 1954 in Platyhelminthes, which we still need to sort out.

    Katja Schulz commented on an older version of Plecoptera:

    @Phil Myers: The problem is that there is a moth genus (Plecoptera Guenée in Boisduval & Guenée, 1852) that's a homonym of the order Plecoptera. I am just now in the process of removing invading stone flies from that page. I haven't seen the ADW export file, so I don't know whether we get sufficient context information (parent taxon, rank) in that file to correctly place these images. But for now the manual re-association should take care of it.

    Katja Schulz commented on an older version of Plecoptera:

    This was incorrectly associated with the moth genus rather than the insect order.

    Pourquoi pensez-vous cela? Regardez la source dans le catalogue spécimen de musée. Il dit Trigonostoma (Trigonostoma) antiquata Hinds comme la légende de la photo.

    misspelling of Pachylasma aurantiacum?

    Katja Schulz commented on an older version of Economic Importance for Humans: Negative:

    Spelling mistakes, other inaccuracies, the Zurich Zoo is in Switzerland, not Germany.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Geograpsus stormi De Man, 1895":

    @John Starmer: Ok, I have requested a split of this taxon concept to separate G. stormi from G. lividus. It'll probably take a few hours to go through. We should then check to make sure the content got sorted out properly in the split.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Geograpsus stormi De Man, 1895":

    @John Starmer: WoRMS tells us that Geograpsus lividus is a synonym of G. stormi, so these names are merged into a common EOL taxon concept. Do you think they should be treated as separate species?

    Katja Schulz commented on "Okapia johnstoni (P. L. Sclater, 1901)":

    @Deniz Martinez: Thanks for catching this. I have made you a co-manager of the Taxon Concept Management To Do List where we keep track of these kinds of issues. If you find other taxa that need to be merged or split, please post them to this collection and put information on the desired action (merge/split) in the annotation of the collection item.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Graphium sarpedon nipponus":

    @Thomas Karrer: I just checked your observations on iNaturalist. Only research grade iNat observations are imported to EOL. I just confirmed your id on this one, so it is now research grade and should come to EOL with our next harvest. However it will be imported to Graphium sarpedon, not Graphium sarpedon nipponus, because you only provide the species id on iNaturalist. I think the subspecies is not in the iNaturalist database and would have to be added there. For this observation, you still need to agree to the id to get it to research grade. This observation is already research grade and looks like it should have been imported previously to Graphium sarpedon, but I don't see it there. Let's check again in a couple of days to see if your images will come in with our next iNat import. Also, note that your Papilio xuthus observations are all missing IDs, so they cannot be imported. If you add those IDs, I will confirm them, so they will be research grade.

    Ellen Strong: Sipho simpsoni is a misspelling of Sipho stimpsoni, which now belongs in Colus

    Katja Schulz commented on "Image of Plantae and Trichosanthes wallichiana":

    As a curator, you can associate this image with Trichosanthes wallichiana. Look for the add new association link in the top right corner of the image data page. Then enter Trichosanthes wallichiana in the Add a taxon association box and pick one of the search results. Ideally, though, you would fix the problem at the source. Maybe somebody at MorphBank could help you with their taxon association method?
