Primary References on taxon pages. edit

Please use Primary References exclusively for the protologue and relevant amendments. Anything else should go into the Additional References or Links sub-section, for example citation of the basionym, where the name has changed and other relevant material.

Thank you! A very good example. IFPNI Staff (talk) 19:28, 26 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Alcea litwinowii and others edit

Please note that POWO and others do not follow your spelling of the epithet. However, it is in IPNI but as a hybrid. Andyboorman (talk) 08:15, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

POWO is in error: the ICN required to follow the original spelling of species epithet, in our case Iljin used in 1924 and 1949 litwinowi(i). So, the IPNI is correct. We usually inform IPNI as a primary source of taxonomic information about errors, but in this case they are good. POWO and others are secondary sources imported info mostly from the IPNI - in our case I could not understand their chages of litwinowi(i) to litvinovi(i).

Do you suggest that it is a hybrid and should be treated so, or have things changed since the original publication? Andyboorman (talk) 08:42, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
I amended the current hybrid status. Yesterday I started initially to edit the eponymic links, and met some ill-defined names, which were not planned for edits. IFPNI Staff (talk) 08:59, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
Great I will ask POWO to update their entries. Thanks. Andyboorman (talk) 09:53, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
Just heard back from POWO and they will update it should appear on their next updates. Thanks. Andyboorman (talk) 11:58, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
Perfect! POWO is great! Thank you for your suggestions! IFPNI Staff (talk) 07:52, 1 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Rosa and Sections edit

I have added a request on the Pump that you be able to help with. In addition, it is perfectly acceptable to use the term Paleospecies or genus. Andyboorman (talk) 09:16, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Dear colleague, I just follow the terms in the ICN: fossil-species and fossil-genera, no pal(a)eospecies or pal(a)eogenera. Fossil-taxa too. It seems to me more desirable and logical to follow the ICN in the nomenclatural terminology. IFPNI Staff (talk) 09:22, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thanks fr your reply. We do not have a rule here one way or another, but point taken about ICN. Maybe we can discuss on the Pump sometime and ask a bot to change if required. Andyboorman (talk) 09:41, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Good idea! I agree! IFPNI Staff (talk) 09:42, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
