    Any idea why http://eol.org/data_objects/32443423 hasn't been reharvested with the corrected map? I see the harvest ran yesterday, so I would have thought it should have gone through.

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

    Not sure the best collection to flag this up, but there's something odd going on with virus names, e.g. HIV-1 is listed as "nodificiency virus 1", and lots of others are missing the first few letters of the name (e.g. "Ectious anemia virus"). See http://eol.org/pages/33005380/overview

    Thanks, Steve! I have access to that dataset and can remove the doubtful flagged names if that is your recommendation. And if you have new data sources to suggest, we can also add those.

    **That goes for all of you*** Do you know of a great data source we should be using in TraitBank? Note that we can only host data if permissible according to the terms of use. If you're not sure, point us to it and we can check it out. Also, digital is better than paper and structured databases or tables are better still!

    Steve Haddock commented on "EOL Curators":

    I just got the newsletter about TraitBank, which is nice, but there are some inaccuracies. How are traits edited? For "bioluminescence", all of the taxa listed by Herring 1987 are included in TraitBank, but in that paper, the names not in italics are from doubtful reports. A subtle but important point, and those taxa should *not* be listed as bioluminescent. There are also more recent references that include additions to the list of bioluminescent species. Finally it might be good to capture as an attribute which species are bioluminescent due to bacterial symbionts, which is also listed in Herring 1987.

    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."

    Jan Kameníček commented on "Associations":

    Hello. Your article Theodoxus fluviatilis contains wrong information about predators of this snail. It states that the predators are Perca flavescens, Orconectes limosus and Astacus astacus. The information is taken from Animal Diversity Web, which takes it from Schneckli 2009. However, the Schneckli's article does not say that the mentioned species are predators of T. fluviatilis. See the original German version: https://web.archive.org/web/20120704074343/http://www.allesumdieschneck.de/html/theodoxus_fluviatilis.html Jan Kamenicek

    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.

    @Matthew A. Birk: Hi - welcome. I think that's a question for @Katja Schulz. I'm generally keen to get content (images, text etc) trusted, although I can't see any images on http://eol.org/collections/23073 at the moment. What would be useful is a way of filtering http://eol.org/collections/55422 by taxonomic group, to see if there are any cephalopod taxa flagged up for particular attention. I don't know of any way to do this, though. Maybe others do?
