Template:Invalid taxon category redirect

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This category is located at [[:Category:{{{1}}}]]
Reason: Invalid taxon category redirect is an invalid taxon whose members are now placed in [[:Category:|]]
Note: This category should be empty. Any content should be recategorised.

This tag should be used on existing categories that are likely to be used by others, even though the "real" category is elsewhere. Redirected categories should be empty and not categorised themselves. It should not be used on categories that are misspellings and thus unlikely to be used by other people.

Such categories should be tagged as: {{bad name|Category:correct name}}.

Use this template instead of using {{Category redirect}} to redirect a invalid/deprecated taxon category to another one.
If there is exact synonymy (same content), prefer {{Synonym taxon category redirect}}
For example: redirect invalid family category Sternidae to valid family category Laridae (no exact synonymy as Sternidae content has been moved in Laridae).

  • Sternidae:
    {{Invalid taxon category redirect|Laridae|source=ioc3.1|accessdate=2012-09-20}}
    {{Invalid taxon category redirect|Laridae}}
  • Cinclosomatidae (Cinclosomatidae has been splitted in Psophodidae,Eupetidae):
    {{Invalid taxon category redirect|Corvoidea|Psophodidae|Eupetidae|source=ioc3.1}}
{{Invalid taxon category redirect | targetCategoryName | splitedInTaxon1 | splitedInTaxon2 | ... | source=<WebSiteShortName> }}
