This category is located at [[:Category:]]

Reason: Monotypic taxon category redirect is monotypic and contains only [[:Category:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]

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}}.

This documentation is transcluded from Template:Monotypic taxon category redirect/doc.

Use this template instead of using {{Category redirect}} to redirect a monotypic taxon category to its unique sub taxon category.
You should you {{Single}} on the destination category.

  • Redirect the monotypic genus category Oryctolagus to its unique species category Oryctolagus cuniculus :
    {{Monotypic taxon category redirect|Oryctolagus cuniculus|source=MSW|accessdate=2012-09-20}}
    {{Monotypic taxon category redirect|Oryctolagus cuniculus}}
  • Oryctolagus cuniculus should contain:
  • Redirect the genus category Psilorhynchus to its monotypic family category Psilorhynchidae :
    {{Monotypic taxon category redirect|Psilorhynchidae|destIsMonotypic=yes|source=FishBase & ITIS|accessdate=2012-10-29}}
{{Monotypic taxon category redirect | targetCategoryName | source=<WebSiteShortName> }}
Main Parameters
  • targetCategoryName
name of target-category (without the "Category:" prefix)
Sample (for Oryctolagus): Oryctolagus cuniculus
  • destIsMonotypic=yes

Sample (for Oryctolagus): destIsMonotypic=yes
  • note=<note> (optional)
To add a note.

  • name=<TaxonName> (optional, with source=)
on conjunction with source= to specify the taxon name if the current category/gallery name is not exactly the taxon name (In article "Vanda (Orchidaceae)" use name=Vanda)
  • source2=<WebSiteShortName> (optional, with source=)
