    This image is confusing in that it has both a flea and a nematode drawing.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on "File:Nematoda Fadenwurm.jpg":

    While this does look a bit like a nematode I just don't think it is one. It is the right shape but I can see some internal structure, and none of what I see is nematode-like. Also, zooming in it looks like the organism is covered in cilia, which would not be the case for a nematode. My guess is that this is a ciliate (protozoan) of some sort.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on "File:Nematoda Gadus Morhua Fish MArket Atlantic Canada.jpg":

    These are nematode parasites, presumably from the fish Gadus morhua, but the image label suggests that the fish is seen in the image when there are only nematodes.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on "Diplopeltis":

    This article describes a plant, not a nematode. Diplopeltis is a genus of nematodes that seems to be redundant with a genus of plants.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on "Cooperia":

    This is a plant, not a nematode. Cooperia is a genus of nematodes, but this article seems to refer to a plant of the same genus.

    This is not a nematode but a tetrapod instead.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on an older version of Pratylenchus dulscus:

    There doesn't seem any evidence for this species of Pratylenchus on any reputable list of species, such as the University of Nebraska's: http://nematode.unl.edu/pratylist.htm The species name likely comes from almond (Prunus dulcis) but I am unable to verify the name with the original description or a reputable list.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on an older version of Heterodera rosii:

    The original description of Heterodera rosii by Duggan and Brennan (1966) indicates that the host is curled dock (Rumex crispus). The association with chickpea seems to be from a mention in Kaloshian et al. (1986) where a nematode on chickpea in Syria was first identified as H. rosii but then later identified as H. ciceri.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on an older version of File:Baylisascaris larvae.jpg:

    @Robert Hole, Jr: Hi Robert. I've been a curator for a few years but haven't had much time for it until now, so I apologize for being a bit foggy on what's going on. I think it seems that you added the association of Procyon to Baylisascaris, but then you marked it as untrusted and hidden. There is an association between these 2 taxa of course, so I marked Procyon as trusted and visible, but I'm not sure of the correct way to convey it as now it seems I am showing Procyon as being in this image, which it's not! Should I just leave it as hidden and that will allow searches to find the association but it won't suggest that there's a raccoon in the image? Thanks! Ashleigh

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on an older version of Necator (fungus):

    While there is a genus of nematodes called Necator (some parasites known as hookworms) this item is referring to a genus of fungi.

    Ashleigh Smythe commented on "":

    This page provides no content and should be removed as it seems to just be a link from a sequence database and the nematode is not identified beyond nematode. Further, it (as a number of other pages) is incorrectly associated with the common name Molluscs.
