I created this gallery. I attempted to do it in a way that was consistent with wiki commons genus galleries, but there seems to be some variation so I picked a format that I liked best. Please feel free to comment or make changes. I am new to this and there easily could be better ways of doing things.

One issue is whether to show tribes and subfamilies in the taxonavigation box. I read somewhere that wiki commons likes to keep it simple and not use the intermediate taxa. The people that have set up the species galleries have not been consistent on that.

The fact that there are a lot of squirrel species argues for breaking it up in my mind. So I intend to do that if I don't receive suggestions to the contrary. If the subfamily and tribe taxons are added there is an issue of whether to have galleries for those itermediate taxa or not. I would like to hear what others have to say about that.

More species galleries would be nice. Right now there aren't very many Spermophilus species represented in wiki commons.
