    Andrew Brower commented on "EOL Curators":

    Hi all, Is there any way to bulk-curate multiple images of the same thing? I am looking at an entire page of photos of monarch butterfly overwintering colonies. It is obvious from the thumbnails that that's what they are, and it is very time-consuming to open and trust each of them individually. AB

    Not sure what can be done about this, but I imagine a search for "herring" should give Atlantic Herring somewhere high up? http://eol.org/search?q=herring&search=Go

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Thanks Michael, this should be fixed now. The problem was due to the fact that Cornutia pyramidata has a bunch of synonyms in the genus Hosta Jacq.: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/kew-47586

    Cornutia (Lamiaceae) images are also appearing incorrectly on the Hosta (Asparagaceae) page. Can they be disassociated, please?

    @Nick Durmuller:

    It's not that simple. This particular case is actually quite complicated. Tricholoma albobrunneum is an accepted species name based on several different sources: http://eol.org/pages/1008934/names?all=1 So we definitely need to have a taxon page for it. BUT in the literature the name has apparently also been applied to specimens representing other species, not just Tricholoma ustaloides but also Tricholoma ustale and Tricholoma batschii. So that's why it's listed as a synonym on each of those pages. We would not want to have all these pages merged together because they do represent different species. It's just that there has been some confusion in the application of names in the past. Also, we would not want to have T. ustaloides, ustale, and batschii listed as synonyms on the Tricholoma albobrunneum page, because there's no record of these names having been mis-applied to Tricholoma albobrunneum specimens. The synonym relationship is not reciprocal here. If what you want is a list of pages on which the name Tricholoma albobrunneum is listed either as a preferred name or as a synonyms, you can do a search and click through to see all results: http://eol.org/search?q=Tricholoma+albobrunneum&show_all=true

    It's important to note that the EOL names infrastructure is much more complicated than that of Wikipedia or other sites that build a single consensus classification. Each EOL taxon page matches names from a series of different sources algorithmically. With that many voices weighing in, you'll never get a fully integrated, consistent taxonomy. The best we can do is to provide a semi-consistent approximation that represents dissenting opinions as faithfully as possible.

    @Theodore Ganea: Unfortunately, we cannot change the subject of an article. Only the provider can do this. Also, the sequence of articles changes based on user ratings, so I don't know which article was first when you looked at the page. But neither of the two Brief Summary articles on that pages is terribly long.

    Theodore Ganea commented on "Katja Schulz":

    Katja Schulz, On the page "Equus Zebra", the first article in "Brief Summary" is misplaced. In my opinion, it should be under "Comprehensive Description". I am only an assistant curator, so I don't have the rank to edit articles. Please check out the article. If you think the article should be in "Comprehensive Description" please move the article to "Comprehensive Description".
