If you have time and want to, than please create this category: Eriophyes triradiatus. Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 08:04, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
- Hi, the accepted name for this species seems to be Stenacis triradiatus, so I created that name instead, with a redirect from the name Eriophyes triradiatus. Uleli (talk) 16:34, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi, Thank you! but according to the enwiki the Eriophyes is the valid name. DenesFeri (talk) 08:23, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
- Please ask a zoologist about the correct and current name. A brief internet sulf indicate that the current status is Stenacis triradiatus, but I can't value these. I am into plants.
Hello Denesferi Dr Enrico de Lillo, Universita degli Studi di Bari, Italia is the group specialist for Fauna Europaea has Stenacis triradiatusas the corrrect placement. Use this name. How are you? Best regards Robert aka Notafly (talk) 13:40, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Not Ophidiaster ophidianus?
- Hello, it is definitely not an Ophidiaster ophidianus, and obviously not even a species of the Ophidiasteridae family. Ophidiaster ophidianus has rounded and flexible arms, and neither triangular nor pointed - it shares somehow the same appearance as the Linckia species, with a different color and longer arms. Your specimen looks very much like the "sandstars" of the Paxillosida order, with its distinct flat surface and digging ossicles (it may be an Astropecten, but I don't master this genus enough to be definitive). As it appears to be a souvenir, I think it has been dyed (like on this picture).
Here are my reasons : why did you think it was an Ophidiaster ophidianus ? Regards, FredD (talk) 08:51, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Denes - what is your evidence for File:Phoenix theophrasti - Malta.jpg being Phoenix theophrasti? It looks more like P. canariensis; also, its size means it is likely older than the description of P. theophrasti as a new species (1967). I have moved it to Cat:Unidentified Phoenix for the time being. - MPF (talk) 20:55, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Aceria macrorhynchus or Aceria macrochela?
After reading nl:Esdoornnerfhoekmijt (which is the Dutch name for Aceria macrochela) I wondered if two images you uploaded in 2011 are correctly classified. I have linked them below:
- File:Aceria macrorhynchus 1 - Putney Heath Common 2011.08.02.jpg
- File:Aceria macrorhynchus 2 - Putney Heath Common 2011.08.02.jpg
The Dutch article mentions the following characteristics of Aceria macrochela:
- The galls form:
- where the veins split, and
- at the base of the leaves.
- The mites parasite Acers and preferably Acer campestre, (field maple, magyar: mezei juhar)
The galls in your pictures happen to have formed on field maple leaves and their distribution on the leaf matches the description above. Moreover, the color and form and dimensions of the galls on your photos differ markedly from the other pictures in Category:Aceria macrorhynchus.
Non-scientific sources often misclassify galls, so I am not absolutely sure. Even so one can't fail to spot the strange dichotomy in Category:Aceria macrorhynchus. Hopefully you will be able to resolve this issue. I think re-categorization is necessary.
Kind regards, 184.108.40.206 13:40, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Well, I don't know. But I will recategorize them.
