Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.
File:Diodora sayi 01.JPGEdit
Hallo Invertzoo, thank you for your comment. I think you are right, that is not a D. sayi. You said, it is either Lucapina sowerbii or Lucapina adspersa. I checked the specimen and it comes closer to L. sowerbyi. But my specimen has 3.4 cm in length, and both Lucapina sowerbii or Lucapina adspersa are smaller. Therefore I think, it is a L. aegis, which reaches the size of my specimen (see ). Could you please give me a short reply on my talk page, if you agree with L. aegis? Thanks --Llez (talk) 18:31, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
- Hallo Invertzoo, this morning I checked the colour of my specimen in daylight and found, that there is a slight difference in colour in respect to my picture in Commons (It is very difficult to get the right colour on photos and mostly it must be corrected. To years ago, when I took the photo, I hadn't the experience in colour correction I have now, and normally, a slight difference is tolerable because there is also some colour variation within a species, but in this case...). The original specimen is indeed more greenish as depicted. I adjusted the coulor, to get the exactly colour and uploaded this new version. If you have a look on it and compare it with , you will find, that 1.) the colour fits well with theses specimens, 2.) the arrangement, number and form of the brown rays is nearly identical (whereas in L. adspersa it is qiute different) - and I think this is more important than some variation in green, 3.) the size fits also (see link of yeserday) and I must not suppose a "giant form" which is nowhere mentioned in lierature. So I'm still convinced, it is an aegis and not an adspersa. --Llez (talk) 06:54, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
- Crepidula species in general are often difficult (or even impossible) to identify using only shell characters, and because I have never lived there or visited there, I don't know the tropical Eastern Atlantic fauna. However it is worth pointing out that this individual may have been living on the outside of a pectinid shell, and that may be why the shell is corrugated. Invertzoo (talk) 16:15, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
