¿Como puedo poner Pella (Staphylinidae) en el taxon para que solo aparezca Pella? Saludos.--MILEPRI (talk) 08:40, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

We decided a long time ago not to hide the disambiguation (The disambiguation is useful for the contributor and for the external reader).
So "Pella (Staphylinidae)" should be displayed (not only "Pella")
But as you can see: "(Staphylinidae)" is in small in the title and in the Taxonavigation

Cèdre de l'Atlas à catégoriser

Bonjour Liné1, il y aurait sans doute une correction à apporter à la catégorisation de cet arbre (voir cet échange sur fr.wp). D'autant plus que je vois que les anglophones et germanophones ont aussi adopté Cedrus atlantica alors que Commons en est encore à une redirection vers Cedrus libani et une catégorie Category:Cedrus libani subsp. atlantica. Peux-tu faire quelque chose pour actualiser tout ceci ? --Salix (talk) 08:18, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

PS. Une requête rapide à propos de WBR t'attend ici. Merci d'avance.

@Liné1: As-tu vu ce message ? --Salix (talk) 19:46, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
@Salix: I just saw this here! The genetic and morphological evidence does not support species status for atlantica; it is too closely similar to libani type - see File:Cedrus phylogeny.png. Much of the claims for species status for atlantica are based on cultivated plants which have a very limited gene base; when they are examined in their native populations, variation is much greater, and it becomes very difficult to distinguish them. - MPF (talk) 15:06, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
@MPF: Well, ok, but what do you think of that compared to this, according to Kew WCSP ? --Salix (talk) 18:45, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
@Salix: I consider that Kew have made a poor judgement there, quite likely due to force of tradition (a.k.a. "nomenclatural stability") over scientific evidence. There just isn't enough hard evidence to support species rank when a range of natural origin material is investigated. - MPF (talk) 20:49, 17 February 2016 (UTC)


No aparece supertribus en el taxon. ¿Que debo hacer para que aparezca?. Saludos y perdone las molestias.--MILEPRI (talk) 08:24, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

You should give me example of the problem.
But I can guess: {{Coleoptera}} does not manage supertribus.
But again, is it wise to introduce supertribus ?
Most of the time the tribus have different content depending on the sources. So supertribes are worth.

Mission creep

Hi Liné1 - I've recently noticed a number of birds where you have greatly extended the headings (e.g. here for Chloris chloris). Unfortunately, this leads to a number of problems:

  • (a) several of the synonyms were for another taxon altogether (Todiramphus chloris) and shouldn't have been in at all (the IUCN search is failing you by giving spurious results!);
  • (b) the {{SimpleTaxa|sp|Xxxx xxxx}} does not italicise the name, but does add an unwanted circular redirect (clicking on the link just takes you to a redirect to the same page; this is deprecated); and
  • (c) a plethora of spammy external links to low-quality sites like itis (and catalogue of life, which just copies itis), which is misleading to readers - we should stick to IOC alone, as that is our definitive authority for birds. All of this stuff is outside of Commons scope, and pushes the real Commons scope material (images!) lower down the page, making it harder to access particularly for people using mobile devices. It is best to stick to just Taxonavigation, Wikispecies link, important synonyms (those in widespread use), VN, a single external link (to IOC for birds) or at most two (with IUCN for conservation status) and interwikis at the end; anything else belongs elsewhere, on Wikispecies or the various language wikipedias, and not here. Merci! - MPF (talk) 23:51, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Hello @MPF:
  • (a) You are right, I was mislead by IUCN website. I will be careful in the future.
  • (b) I corrected{{SimpleTaxa}} about italics. Don't worry about potential circular redirections. They are only possible when 2 galleries have a redirect on each other. Here a link + a{{Category redirect}} are involved. There is no risk. But clearly the link are needed: to check if the category already exist, if it contains a correct redirect or even detect the problem I introduced
  • (c) I globally agree on that point. But I never understoud your problem with space (You really think that people access wikicommons from mobile devices?): do you have a small screen ? Are you zooming too much. Even in your wiki syntax you avoid carriage returns. Strange.
Cheers Liné1 (talk) 19:55, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
Hi Liné1 - Merci! I still think visible links (which invite everyone to click on them) to redirects are not a good idea; it is easy enough to find out if they exist or not by using the Special:WhatLinksHere link for the category. Screens - sometimes I use a large one, sometimes a small one, depending on context. But it is much better I find to have spaces rather than carriage returns in VN in the editing window :-) MPF (talk) 18:01, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Taxonomic work on Naturalis donation

Category:Stenocactus multicostatus

I have a problem with this category. I don't know if it should be redirected to Category:Echinofossulocactus multicostatus... And maybe it should be the opposite? Can you help me, please? Wieralee (talk) 21:06, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello my friend,
All the sources prefer Stenocactus multicostatus.
So as you said, I inverted the redirect.
The problem is with the genus.
I seems that the genus is still valid.
Cheers Liné1 (talk) 12:01, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
For Category:Echinofossulocactus crispatus, it is bad.
You have merged 3 species in one. It will be difficult to separate the species back.
Liné1 (talk) 13:26, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
  • @Liné1: I'm not merging any category. I'm only moving files from redirected categories, because the should be empty: files in such categories are hidden. But sometimes somebody is creating a redirection wheel: two categories which are redirecting each other :( This time it was User:Uleli... I don't have any knowlege of botany, so I'm asking you. I'd like to know how to fix it.
You'd written: "For Category:Echinofossulocactus crispatus, it is bad." It tells me nothing, I'm sorry :(
Thank you for your patience :-) Wieralee (talk) 17:11, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
There has been many attempts to favour the name Stenocactus over the earlier Echinofossulocactus. Tjaden (1982) proposed to conserve Stenocactus over Echinofossulocactus. The proposal was rejected by the Spermatophyta Committee (Brummitt 1987). Full citation on wikispecies. In general the number of "species" in Cactaceae reflect their popularity in cultivation. Many species are published by horticulturist and hobby amateurs rather than by trained botanists. It's a dilemma.... the names has been useful in cultivation to describe individual plants but does not serve to describe the variation of the wild populations. The scientific names should describe wild plant populations and many cacti names are published from plants taken out of context. For cultivation there are other ways to describe differences (International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants), which has hithero not been used often in the cactus family. I have, as far as possible relied on scientific works for the synonymy Uleli (talk) 09:41, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
Hello @Uleli, Wieralee:,
1987 is a long time ago.
Currently a lot of online sources prefer Stenocactus.
I fact I don't really think that naming the category Stenocactus crispatus or Echinofossulocactus crispatus is so important if both names are valid (it is possible in botanic).
The very important part is the{{Synonym taxon category redirect}} and the justification of the redirect.
For Category:Echinofossulocactus crispatus is is more problematic as it contained 3 species. In that case, there is an issue because sorting the species is difficult.

I just found en:Template:TaxonIds and en:Template:Taxonbar. Anyway we can use some of that code? (Especially that last template, since it uses Wikidata as a source and automaticly flls it out.) Josve05a (talk) 21:02, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello @Josve05a:,
I thought a lot about these kind of templates. As a result, I don't like these templates:
  • their display is awfull.
  • they provide no information: no authority, no validity, no accepted name/syn. for synonymy
    • I introduced our templates because each source has a different preferred name, a different authority (See Pulsatilla_vulgaris)
  • they provide only one link when our template provide multiple: mirrors ({{FishBase species}}), subtaxa link ({{WRMS}},{{Tropicos}}), direct access to repartition...
  • they provide only one link when our template can be called multiple times: See Pulsatilla_vulgaris
  • they use named parameters
    • these are difficult to remember => contributors will copy/paste all of the parameters with empty values then fill them => will dirty the calling categories/galleries
    • they need longer syntax than the current taxon: <{{IUCN|EN|3746|Canis lupus|Linnaeus, 1758}} compared to |rank=species|iucn_id=3746|iucn_category=EN|iucn_name=Canis lupus|iucn_authority=Linnaeus, 1758
    • it will create a conflict among the contributors: those that want all parameters on one line (like MPF) vs those that want one parameter per line (me)
  • Wikipedia performance: each time I improve a template, wikimedia has to recompute 15K articles ({{MSW}} template is used on mammals category only). Here a change on this central template would impact 200.000 calling articles
  • template code: rapidly the code of the template will be so huge that I will have to create a subtemplate per website
  • wikidata: will not be able to help us:
    • category element have no database id (only the article elements have). I really don't want to have to create a gallery for each of our taxon. I would be awfull.
    • They are loosing themselves with strange choices: for one taxon they create as much elements as there are synonyms. Look at d:Q1702151 (Carduelis uropygialis) and d:Q10820719 (Spinus uropygialis) are synonym and should not be merged. So the wikidata of
    • their database properties are not filled by bot but manually or worth by import of en.wikipedia
Cheers Liné1 (talk) 11:40, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for your lng an detailed respons. A few reasons as t why I want somethng like this:
  • It will add IDs to those categories which d not have IDs (we also have arbitrary access now; we can therefore use a taxn item on Wikidata, even if not connected to the category).
  • It is "small"/collapsable, and does not add a wall of text/links

He creado Panurgini porque he editado un género que pertenece a esa tribu y no había sido realizado. Luego he continuado con lo que estaba haciendo. Si edito todas las tribus, luego tendría que realizar todas las subfamilias, géneros, etc. No lo estoy dejando para que Vd. lo termine, con tiempo ya llegaré a esa familia para actualizarla y ponerla al día, pero ahora estoy trabajando en Unidentified insects con casi 2000 entradas que en su mayoría pueden cambiarse a su especie o género.

Please keep Categories Kawahara collection Naturalis

Dear Liné1,

Thank you for all your work. Just one thing, i saw you threw images out of the donation category Category:Kawahara Collection at Naturalis Biodiversity Center, example. "Suppressed less precise categories", but then the archival function is lost and the donation unravels.

I tried to put them back in, but anyway the donated collection there is now incomplete: ~10-20? images missing of the original 892 that i have to hunt down. Please leave images in this main category so that the donor and users always have an overview of donated Kawahara images plus cropped versions, useful for management of the whole bunch. The purpose of the subcategory Category:Uncertain species in the Kawahara Collection at Naturalis Biodiversity Center was only to single out unidentified images, not to make a logical exclusive categorisation which is risky when cases are hopefully resolved and rightfully taken out of that special category but then lost to the main category. Thank you, best regards, Hansmuller (talk) 07:12, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello @Hansmuller:
I understand this double categorisation (which is not classical ;-)).

VN worked very fine after we last spoke, accommodating many more languages based on codes! But I see a problem since the last day or so: While importing names from wikidata, it overrides any anternative names that I have added and ONLY uses the wikidata names. Should it not only ADD the wikidata names? Must all names now be in wikidata first? I added many alternative names to VN, separated by commas, which now disappear.

Thalictroideae and Isopyroidea

Hello I have altered the circumscription of Ranunculaceae pages on Wikispecies to reflect current usage and knowledge in the scientific literature. Thalictroideae Raf. (1815) has priority over Isopyroideae Schrödinger (1909) and so I have changed this subfamily. Commons still keeps Isopyroideae. In addition, I have made adjustments in the tribes of Ranunculoideae, but have keep a couple of the previous tribes for now as redirects. This is a bit of mess as it is not always clear where priority lies, but as you pointed out with Delphinieae versus Aconiteae the majority of papers use the former.

I always enjoy using your most useful logiciel WBR. Would you like to improve the output of interwikis by using the Template:Interwiki from wikidata? It works very well for categories of higher taxa, if the commons category is linked to a corresponding wikidata-category. Then interwikis for either categories or for pages (when there is no category) are given. For categories at species level, the wikidata ID (Qxxxxxx) has to be added, additionally. Here is an example: Category:Tilia tomentosa. What do you think of this proposal? Kind regards from --Thiotrix (talk) 19:13, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello Liné1, I think the reason for adding the Item ID is, that for many species (and some genera) in commons there exists both a category and a gallery. And usually the species gallery has to be linked to wikidata and receives the interwikis. Then the category is left without interwikis, although it may be much better than some neglected galleries with few images. WBR lists just the main wikipedia interwikis (en, es, de, fr, it, pt).
For higher taxa, commons categories shall be linked to wikidata-categories only (It seems that for species it is accepted meanwhile). But many wikipedias have no categories for genera or subfamilies and are not listed in the interwiki links. TemplateVN does not list interwikis without a vernacular name. The "template:Interwiki from wikidata" works good for such cases, perhaps you may try to add it at the end of WBR?
Thank you for your immense work on plants higher taxa. How far did you get with this huge project? My botanical work on species level can not and should not be fully automatized. (It's enough mess in the 4 bot-written wikipedias ceb, sv, vi, war...). I'm usually working on commons and wikidata simultaneously, adding and linking commons categories and galleries there, or creating new wikidata items, and can also fetch Wikidata ID for commons. But an output of "Template:Interwiki from wikidata|Qxxxxx" for species in WBR would be helpful. Cheers, --Thiotrix (talk) 14:00, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Your newest templates

Salu Liné1, I am always astonished at your ingenious abilities. What would be Commons without you? Only a part of now. Thanks!! Cheers. Orchi (talk) 20:46, 16 November 2016 (UTC)


Can you check this edit? I did that to get a lot of categories out of Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls. Multichill (talk) 21:11, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

@Multichill: Hello Multichill,
Thanks a lot for notifying me. I corrected the issue.
