    @Michаel Frаnkis: Actually, Yan just mentioned in another thread that the new Wikimedia Commons connector does not harvest subspecies. That would explain it.

    @Sarah Miller: Hm, that's odd. It's definitely overdue now. I will ask somebody from our technical team to check what's going on. Thanks!

    @Bruno Petriccione: I don't have enough of an understanding of the group to know how L. alpinum and L. nivale are differentiated. I recommend that you use the name that makes the most sense to you. If you think that Leontopodium alpinum should be recognized as a separate species, you can tag the images with "taxonomy:binomial=Leontopodium alpinum" If you think treating it at the subspecies level is appropriate, you can use "taxonomy:trinomial=Leontopodium nivale alpinum" In either case, your contributions will show up on the Leontopodium alpinum/Leontopodium nivale subsp. alpinum page.

    @David Illig: Thanks David, if you have updated the machine tags, the taxon association should fix itself within a day or two. No other action is required. Let me know if you notice any problems.

    I have been advised authoritatively that the plant that I identified as Amaryllis belladonna, and which is posted under that species, is in fact the very similar looking Lycoris squamigera. I regret the error. I have changed the machine tag on Flickr and re-posted to the EOL group.

    Katja Schulz commented on Katja Schulz's newsfeed:

    @David Illig: I just checked, and the machine tag is still "taxonomy:binomial=Cymbalophora sp." Please also note that binomial tags should be used only for two-part names, i.e., when you know both the genus and the species. If you just know the genus, simply use the genus tag: http://www.flickr.com/groups/encyclopedia_of_life/discuss/72157629880163919/

    @Cyndy Parr: Thanks very much, Cyndy. I did fix the faulty machine tag on the Flickr page and the photos are now on the correct page. I again apologize for the inconvenience. "Citizen scientist."

    Cyndy Parr commented on "David Illig":

    @David Illig: If you add correct machine tags and delete the bad machine tags on Flickr, then that page will automatically disappear in the next few days. Unfortunately, although we can add tags, we can't delete them. In the meantime I've re-identified the photos on EOL as Mus musculus and untrusted them as Mus muscula.

    David Illig commented on David Illig's newsfeed:

    Of the three photos of Mus musculus that I submitted, one had an erroneous machine tag. It read "Mus muscula" instead of "Mus musculus." This led to these photographs being put on a page of their own as "Mus muscula." If you choose to use the photos, they should be moved to "Mus musculus." I apologize for the error.

    @Jack Hall: Neopanope texana is a synonym of Dyspanopeus texanus, i.e., these two names refer to the same species http://www.itis.gov/servlet/SingleRpt/SingleRpt?search_topic=TSN&search_value=98771

    Katja Listen the Neopanope Texana is a completely different specimen than the Dyspanus Texanus, you have to un merge the two page they're not the same creature

    Hello, I have been talking to the Executive Director of the newly founded Invertebrate Studies Institute https://www.facebook.com/InvertebrateStudiesInstitute/ (I am going to be helping them out with some projects as they develop their website and online presence), and he has expressed interest in becoming a content partner with EOL. Whom should I put him in contact with to get info on how to proceed with this? Thanks! Cheers, Deniz

    @Paul Bedell: That's really strange. When you search for Neoitamus flavofemoratus, you get nothing, and when you search for Neoitamus, you get a bunch of names, but not Neoitamus flavofemoratus.

    Katja Schulz commented on Katja Schulz's newsfeed:

    @Derek Sikes: Two things: (1) Not all synonyms are displayed in the synonyms tab. We currently list only the data from EOL classification providers. We really need to change that, but haven't gotten around to doing that yet. (2) But in this case that wouldn't have helped, because we actually don't have a formal N. confusus = jnr syn of N. sepultor from any of our data partners. Instead I have simply merged the taxon concepts based on your advice. So we have a tool to merge/split taxon concepts, but we don't have a tool to manually enter synonym relationships. If you can provide a silphid hierarchy somewhere that includes synonyms, we could upload these data as an alternative browsing hierarchy on EOL, and we could promote it to an EOL classification providers, so the synonyms would become visible.
