Ficaria verna bulbils[edit]

Hi Kenraiz! I have just uploaded some photos of Ficaria bulbils, including [this one]. I see you had done so too, a year or so ago. You have identified yours as Ficaria verna ssp. verna i.e. the type species. However, I believe that, according to Sell (1994), it is only two subspecies of F. verna that form bulbils, i.e. ssp. ficariiformis and ssp. bulbilifer. See this article for details. I can't distinguish between the two: consulting the key in this article, the distinguishing features between the two subspecies seem to be size (which I find varies considerably, even in the same cultivar, depending on the growing conditions and aspect).

Lycaena virgaureae female kz.jpg

Misidentification of Image:Medicago_lupulina_kz1.jpg[edit]

Hi Kenraiz,

Medicago lupulina kz1.jpg

Your photograph Image:Medicago_lupulina_kz1.jpg does not show Medicago lupulina but a Trifolium species. The flowers of Medicago lupulina look quite different (see e. g. Image:MedicagoLupulina.jpg) and the stalks of the individual flowers are very short so that the inflorescence looks more compact than an inflorescence of a similar Trifolium species. I added a remark in the index page and also in the image discussion page. I suggest that you move your image to Category:Unidentified_Trifolium and rename it accordingly.

opem być[edit]

Witam. Probówałem znaleźć email do Ciebie, ale chyba go nie podałeś w preferencjach pl.Wiki i piszę tu. Mimo wielu propozycji do Ciebie chciałbym ponowić prośbę byś rozważył otrzymanie przycisków na pl.Wiki. Twój wkład jest spory, jest regularny a bycie sysopem na pewno ułatwiłoby Ci pracę. Nie wiem czy wyobrażasz sobie pracę administratora jako osoby, która niesamowicie ciężko pracuje, ale to tylko wynika z nazwy tej funkcji. Bycie sysopem jest po prostu ułatwieniem twojej pracy na Wikipedii, która jest regularna i spora jak na resztę wikipedystów. Pragnę Ci przypomnieć słowa adminship is not big deal, a także aktywny i godny zaufania uczestnik projektu, który pomaga innym. Masz spory elektorat i zaufanie społeczności. To ty przedstawiałeś chłodne nastawienie i pomoc w moim początkach edytorskich jakimi były dyskusje PDA i PAnM. Chciałbym Ciebie zgłosić na PUA na pl.Wiki, jeśli uważasz że rekomendacja nie powinna wyjść ode mnie to ja już widzę las rąk. Przemyśl moje słowa i pamiętaj że bycie adminem ma Ci pomóc, a nie być twoim brzemieniem. Oferuję także swoją pomoc jeśli byś chciał. JDavid (talk) 12:04, 18 June 2009 (UTC)[]

Hello, Kenraiz!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

I am writing a book on the “green walls technologies” and I have found very interesting a photo in your page. So, I would kindly ask you if I can use it in my book.

Obviously, if you gently decide to grant me the permission, your name (or your nickname) and the link of the picture will be correctly cited in the credits of my publication.

The photo which I would use is:

Thank you very much! I hope you will attend my request…

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you. Thank you. odder (talk) 22:47, 7 January 2013 (UTC)[]

Category:Jardín Botánico Canario Viera y Clavijo[edit]

Hi Kenraiz, for images taken in the Jardín Botánico Canario Viera y Clavijo, please use this category as well! -- Ies (talk) 15:34, 25 December 2015 (UTC)[]

I have hundreds pictures made there. To category Jardín Botánico I have put pictures which present views garden or somehow its specific parts. I do not think that photos only with plants and their parts are usefull in garden category. Especially that plant photos are not separated from photos which presents garden. Kenraiz (talk) 15:47, 25 December 2015 (UTC)[]
I'm afraid I have to disagree. On the contrary it's very informatic and useful to see what certain plant species are grown in a certain Botanical Garden. (Personally, I visited several Botanical Gardens only because I read or heared that for me interesting plants (succulent plants and Euphorbiaceae) are grown there.) Therefore I established Category:Plants in Jardín Botánico Canario Viera y Clavijo‎ and hope that you use it for all your images of plants taken there. Greetings, -- Ies (talk) 16:19, 25 December 2015 (UTC)[]



Zauważyłem, że pisałeś gdzieś na Wikipedii, że wybierasz się w tym roku do Armenii. Dość dobrze zwiedziłem ten bardzo ciekawy kraj w roku 2014, więc jakbyś miał jakieś pytania co do podróży czy kraju, to śmiało pytaj, chętnie odpowiem i pomogę:) Pod tym adresem zaś znajdziesz wrzucane przeze mnie fotki z Armenii (jeszcze nie wszystkie wrzuciłem, na razie tkwię przy fotkach z Górskiego Karabachu): Category:Images of Armenia by Hons084 (Halavar) --Halavar (talk) 12:36, 27 March 2016 (UTC)[]

Mnie osobiście urzekły dwie prowincje, Jeghegnadzor i Sjunik, czyli południowo-wschodnie prowincje, ze wspaniałymi krajobrazami. W Azerbejdżanie (a więc też w Nachiczewanie) nie byłem, bo tam trzeba wizę, które bardzo trudno dostać. Azerowie strasznie utrudniają przez formalności wjazd do swojego kraju. Z kolei wjazd do Górskiego Karabachu jest bardzo prosty. Z miasta Goris odjeżdżają minibusy (marszrutki) do Stepanakertu. Na granicy, wysiadacie i dostajecie karteczkę wjazdu na teren Republiki Górskiego Karabachu, którą musisz zachować. Następnie w ciągu 3 dni musisz zgłosić się w Stepanakercie do tego budynku: File:2014 Stepanakert, Budynek Ministerstwa Spraw Zagranicznych Republiki Górskiego Karabachu (02).jpg czyli Ministerstwa Spraw Zagranicznych, wypełnić formularz wizowy, zapłacić 3000 AMD (za wizę do 10 dni) i poczekać kilkanaście minut. Możesz wybrać, czy chcesz mieć wklejoną wizę do paszportu (a więc dzięki temu nie wjedziesz już do Azerbejdżanu aż do końca ważności Twojego paszportu) czy też na osobnej kartce, którą po wyjeździe z Górskiego Karabachu możesz sobie zatrzymać na pamiątkę. Górski Karabach w zasadzie niczym nie różni się od Armenii. Jeśli lubisz przyrodę, to gorąco polecam jedyny znakowany w tym kraju pieszy szlak turystyczny Janapar Trail:!39.7215!46.8448 (znakowałem go na OSM). Aha, jeśli nie znasz języka rosyjskiego, to polecam się poduczyć przez wyjazdem podstawowych zwrotów, bo z angielskim tam słabo (zarówno w Górskim Karabachu jak i Armenii, no może poza stolicą). Ludzie są bardzo mili, przyjaźni i pomocni, spędziłem tam 3 tygodnie i ani razu nie było najmniejszych nieprzyjemności. Armenia jest bardzo tania, tańsza niż Gruzja, więc pieniędzy zbyt dużo nie wydacie. Wszystko jest bardzo tanie, noclegi, przejazdy, wstępy, jedzenie i picie a to duży plus. Mam spisane różne ceny, więc jak coś cię interesuje, to mogę podać co ile kosztowało. Gdy będziesz w prowincji Sjunik to polecam spróbować oghi, czyli mocnej wódki robionej z owoców morwy, a więc z tego: File:2014 Górski Karabach, Klasztor Gandzasar, Morwa biała (02).jpg File:2014 Górski Karabach, Klasztor Gandzasar, Morwa biała (01).jpg.

Sedum spurium, Phedimus spurius or Sedum acre?[edit]

Hi Kenraiz,

You say that this is not Sedum acre, but Sedum spurium File:Saxifragales - Sedum spurium - 1.jpg; but it is now in the Phedimus spurius category. Why? Which is the accepted name, and which the synonym? What about this File:Sedum acre - Transylvania 1.jpg? The 2 pictures show the same sp. and even the same specimen. So the second picture also show Sedum spurium? Regards. DenesFeri (talk) 10:50, 16 April 2016 (UTC)[]

"Pinus wangii var. wilsonii" in the San Francisco Botanical Garden[edit]

Hi Ken - did the SF BG give any info on this? The name is not validly published, and the specimen in the photo is Pinus parviflora, not P. wangii. My guess is that the SF BG was given the plant by a nursery, and that the nursery invented a "new" plant as a sales tactic (i.e., the BG is a victim of advertising fraud by the nursery). - MPF (talk) 11:10, 31 December 2016 (UTC)[]

Thanks! I've got cones of both species in my herbarium, so can spot the difference ;-) MPF (talk) 18:47, 2 January 2017 (UTC)[]

Begonia obliqua[edit]

Hi Kenraiz, can you verified that both files in Category:Begonia obliqua are of this very species, because they look very diferent from the type specimen. --Salix (talk) 15:11, 27 February 2017 (UTC)[]

Thank you Kenraiz. One should never have confidence in a botanical garden's label without checking the species afterwards... --Salix (talk) 21:16, 27 February 2017 (UTC)[]

File renaming reason[edit]

Hello, you’ve requested the renaming of several files showing Paronychia argentea exemplars. I followed your requests, but you should in future be careful, which renaming reason you select. This time it was number 3 "error in filename", and this was clearly wrong. Instead you should have chosen reason number 2 "meaningless or ambiguous filename" or (this time even better, but I noticed it too late) reason number 1, because you have uploaded the files. (Side remark: If you want to add some files to this series of "Paronychia argentea kz…", start with number 14: For whatever reason you had left out no. 11, so I shifted the last 3 files one down.) — Speravir – 00:29, 20 April 2017 (UTC)[]

Iberis sempervirens 'Schneeflocke' or Iberis sempervirens 'Snowflake'[edit]

Hello Kenraiz,

Bitte entschuldige, dass ich auf Deutsch schreibe. Aber wenn ich mit meinen schlechten Englischkentnissen Google-Translator nutze, dann kann es zu Missverständnissen führen.

Meine Fragen an Dich: Du hast die Kategorie Category:Iberis sempervirens 'Schneeflocke' angelegt. Ein Benutzer hat viele Bilder mit dem Namen 'Snowball' hochgeladen ([1]). Sind beide identisch ([2] und [3])? Welchen Namen würdest Du vorschlagen, den deutschen oder den englischen? Für den anderen wird dann natürlich eine Weiterleitung eingerichtet. Der Benutzer hat mehr als 34.000 Fotos von Pflanzen hochgeladen. Sehr, sehr viele Bilder von Pflanzensorten. Ich habe bisher die Sorten nur in vorhandene Kategorien einsortiert oder neue erstellt, wenn ich den Namen der Sorte in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur fand. Ansonsten habe ich die Fotos erst einmal in die Oberkategorien einsortiert (Art oder Gattung). Hast Du noch einen Hinweis für mich, wie man Pflanzensorten leichter finden kann? Vielen Dank im Voraus und mit freundlichen Grüßen, Hystrix (talk) 08:17, 10 August 2017 (UTC)[]

(Please excuse me for writing in German. But if I use Google Translator with my bad English skills, then it can lead to misunderstandings.

My questions to you: You have created the category Category:Iberis sempervirens 'Schneeflocke'. A user has uploaded many pictures with the name 'Snowball' ([4]). Are both identical ([5] and [6])? What name would you suggest the German or the English? For the other, of course, a redirect is established. The user has uploaded more than 34,000 photos of plants. Very, very many pictures of plant varieties. I have so far sorted the varieties only into existing categories or created new ones when I found the name of the variety in the scientific literature. Otherwise, I have the photos only once sorted into the top categories (species or genus). Do you still have a hint for me how to find plant cultivations easier? Thanks in advance and sincerely, Hystrix (talk) 08:17, 10 August 2017 (UTC))[]

Category:Nothofagus antarctica[edit]

Ten gatunek był opisany jako Nothofagus × alpina. Na The Plant List są:

  • Nothofagus alpina (Poepp. ex A. DC.) Oerst. – osobny gatunek
  • Nothofagus × alpina (Poepp. ex A. DC.) Oerst. – synonim Nothofagus antarctica

Założyłem, że skoro jest znak "×", to będzie to synonim. Może będzie to jednak Nothofagus alpina? Tournasol7 (talk) 08:11, 21 December 2017 (UTC)[]

Araucaria araucana subcategories[edit]

Hi @Kenraiz and Salicyna: - you recently created a number of new subcategories in Category:Araucaria araucana. This has unfortunately resulted in serious loss of important information, whereby all natural occurrence specimens were in the root category, and all cultivated specimens were in Category:Araucaria araucana (cultivated) or subcategories thereof. Your recategorising has wrecked this important separation, making it impossible for users to know whether a photo is of wild specimens or not, without detailed examination of the image text. Please undo this mess so that the natural and the cultivated are separated again. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 00:24, 5 January 2018 (UTC)[]

And ditto Araucaria heterophylla, and any other species categories to be messed up in this way - MPF (talk) 00:33, 5 January 2018 (UTC)[]

Cakile maritima[edit]

Hi Kenraiz - apologies for the miscategorisation of these 3! I'd assumed that all in the sequence File:Cakile maritima kz1.jpg - File:Cakile maritima kz9.jpg were part of one set all from the same location. It helps a lot if the file names include the location, then this wouldn't happen so easily ;-) MPF (talk) 00:53, 13 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Misidentified images of Hippocrepis[edit]

Hi Kenraiz, I found the three photographs above in Category:Hippocrepis multisiliquosa. However, these images cannot show Hippocrepis multisiliquosa, because the fruits of your species have their "holes" on the inner side of the arcs that the fruits form (the convex side), whereas real Hippocrepis multisiliquosa has the "holes" on the outer side (the concave side), see e.g. my photograph File:Hippocrepis multisiliquosa RF.jpg and also File:Horseshoe plant on Malta.jpg. I found this (in other words) both in the Flora Europaea and in a German language flora of Crete (Jahn/Schönfelder, Exkursionsflora für Kreta) and also got it explained to me by the botanist who told me the ID of my photograph in a German botany forum, . So assuming that the species given at the site are complete, your plant must be Hippocrepis ciliata. The large papillae on the fruits also nicely match Hipocrepis ciliata, whereas Hippocrepis multisiliquosa should have small or no papillae on the fruits according to Flora Europaea. And this is something that might mean that the image of Hipocrepis multisiliquosa on might actually also show a different species. Anyway, your Hipocrepis was clearly misidentified and I am going to change this. If you do not disagree, we should also have the photographs renamed to avoid any confusion. With best regards, --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 12:34, 19 May 2018 (UTC)[]

Copyright pictures[edit]

Dear author,

we would like to use the following pictures for a biodiversity handout to train and inform farmers in the field of biodiversity:

Your name along with a link to the original file and the creative common license will be named in the pictures index (sorted by page number and order of pictures). Although the creative common license does allow the use of the pictures for our purpose, I wanted to make sure you are also fine with us using them.

I would be very grateful if you could give me a short answer.

Kind regards,

Ulrike Harant


Hi Krzysztof - sadly, all your photos which you'd added at Cupressus atlantica are actually C. glabra, which is an invasive exotic species in Morocco. Note the thicker, more angular and more strongly glaucous shoots, and cones with just 6 scales (8-12 in C. atlantica); for the true species, compare here (pp. 78-96) and here. I'll reclassify & rename the photos shortly. - MPF (talk) 18:46, 4 November 2018 (UTC)[]

Thanks! Unfortunate that you missed the real thing; you need to go up the road to the Tizi-n-test pass, hope you get another opportunity. MPF (talk) 21:02, 4 November 2018 (UTC)[]

Not Watsonia coccinea but Hesperantha coccinea?[edit]

Hi Kenraiz, Your two files, Image:Watsonia_coccinea_kz1.jpg and Image:Watsonia_coccinea_kz2.jpg, uploaded on 24 December 2016, in my opinion depict Hesperantha coccinea (=Schizostylis coccinea). Have taken the liberty to move the two images to Hesperantha coccinea. If you agree with this identification, you may want to consider changing the file names as well. Best regards, SAplants (talk) 13:47, 6 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Petasites frigidus[edit]

Dziękuję za identyfikację, zaraz poprawię. Pstrykam wszystko to, co mnie zaciekawi. W przypadku roślin czy owadów często mam duże problemy z identyfikacją, n.p. wierzby na Grenlandii, rośliny Alaski czy Spitsbergenu. Nie jestem też pewien identyfikacji roślin Krety (chociaż w tym przypadku dużą pomocą była grupa "Flowers of Crete'). Jeszcze raz dziękuję i pozdrawiam Jerzystrzelecki (talk) 16:45, 6 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Identity of "File:Watsonia stenosiphon kz1.jpg"[edit]

Hi Kenraiz, On 30 December 2017 you uploaded an image of a pink-flowered member of Watsonia (Iridaceae) taken in the Auckland Botanic Gardens, and filed it under Watsonia stenosiphon. This is an obvious misidentification, presumably based on (as unfortunately is so often the case) an incorrect label in the garden. Watsonia stenosiphon is a relatively small plant with bright orange flowers. The pink-flowered watsonias are particularly difficult to identify from photographs, a task made even more difficult by the existence of garden cultivars. However, I suspect your plant may well be a form of the widely grown Watsonia borbonica (= W. pyramidata). You may want to use the latter name for the image, or move it to Unidentified Watsonia. Best regards, SAplants (talk) 07:24, 8 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Re: Category:Rubus schmidelioides[edit]

Faktycznie wygląda jak Phyllocladus alpinus, który dziś dodawałem z innej lokalizacji :) Poprawił opis i kategorię, no i zgłosiłem nazwę pliku do zmiany. Szczerze ze zdjęć roślin nie jestem zadowolony, szczególnie z tych robionych z bliska, gdzie ważne jest ukazanie detali. Z kolei Twoje zdjęcia wyszły znakomicie!

Postanowiłem sobie, że w końcu prześlę wszystkie zdjęcia z Nowej Zelandii; zostało mi się jeszcze kilka dni... Przy oznaczaniu gatunków często wzoruję się na twoich zdjęciach, ale i tak sporo fotek roślin chyba nie uda się ustalić. Tournasol7 (talk) 23:53, 11 February 2019 (UTC)[]

Re: Siewki[edit]

Cześć, rzeczywiście ogród wrocławski jest świetny, odwiedzam go od lat, a nadal znajduję coś nowego. Wybieram się niedługo do Bratysławy i mam nadzieję odwiedzić tamten ogród. O podręczniku w Wikibooks wiem, zauwżyłam pojawiające się podkategorie ze zdjęciami siewek i trafiłam po wykorzystaniu plików. Świetny pomysł, bo pokazuje etap wzrostu, którego praktycznie nie ma w typowych atlasach roślin. Będę pamiętać i zwrócę uwagę także na siewki podczas wizyt w ogrodzie. Na pewno przyda się żebyś miał ten mój wkład na oku, bo nie mam "opatrzonej" tej formy, a na tabliczkach zdarzaja się błędy. Pozdrawiam, Nova (talk) 06:55, 13 April 2019 (UTC)[]


Hi, I did Category:Baum 12 to Aesculus parviflora]] Baummapper (talk) 16:51,

Krzysztofie! W odpowiedzi na Twoją wiadomość skierowaną bezpośrednio do mnie i zarzuty, że niewłaściwie wykorzystuję Wikimedię oraz że moje fotki są nieużyteczne i niepotrzebnie zajmują czas zarówno mnie jak i innym, chciałbym Ci także coś napisać. Z tego co wiem jesteś człowiekiem po studiach, masz dość wysoką pozycję społeczną a także stać Cię na drogi sprzęt fotograficzny. Zdecydowanie brak Ci jednak wyrozumiałości i szacunku dla pasji innych osób zajmujących się fotografią. Obejrzałem dużo Twoich dzieł imam mieszane uczucia. Twoje zdjęcia są wspaniałe technicznie i za to masz u mnie plus! Są one jednak bardzo monotematyczne i za wyjątkiem niewielkiej grupy miłośników przyrody nie cieszą się wielkim zainteresowaniem. Weź to pod uwagę, zanim zaczniesz krytykować innych. Moje prace są skromne technicznie lecz w bardzo dużej ilości są wykorzystywane do ilustrowania wielu miejscowości w Polsce i za granicą. Mnie najbardziej interesuje turystyka i kolejnictwo i temu poświęcam czas oraz swój lichy sprzęt. Nigdy na forum nie krytykuję czyichś prac, nawet kiedy mi się nie podobają. Widziałem wiele autentycznych "gniotów" i jakoś nie przyszło mi na myśl aby je wyśmiewać. Rozumiem, że każdy z nas ma inne upodobania i możliwości. Dla mnie liczy się pasja i chęć pokazania innym swoich zainteresowań. Ja jestem człowiekiem 73-letnim i mocno schorowanym. Jestem także mniej majętny od Ciebie. Ciebie stać na wycieczki po świecie a mnie co najwyżej po Polsce i Europie i to tylko tanimi liniami lotniczymi. Trudno mi poruszać się w internecie i dlatego mam kłopot z kategoryzowaniem i szczegółowym opisem zdjęć. Cieszy mnie jednak każda moja fotka, którą zobaczę w Wikipedii a jest ich naprawdę bardzo dużo. Sporo moich zdjęć zostało usuniętych przez społeczność ale jest to maleńki procent w stosunku do ich ilości. Z Twoimi zdjęciami jest podobnie! Na koniec chciałbym życzyć Ci większej empatii. Pozdrawiam Cię serdecznie! Antekbojar


Hi Kenraiz - do you have a more detailed location for File:Juniperus cedrus kz5.JPG, please? In particular, was it of a natural wild specimen, or a cultivated plant? Thanks! - MPF (talk) 22:20, 7 January 2020 (UTC)[]

Hi, I have added some more detailed information about location of specimen. I am not sure whether it was cultivated specimen or not - there was a mixture of some ornamental shrubs (different species) close to the path and wild on slopes of hill. It is native species there. Kenraiz (talk) 22:38, 7 January 2020 (UTC)[]
Excellent, thanks! At that altitude (630 m), it will be cultivated; the species occurs naturally only at higher altitudes (mostly around 2,000-2,200 m, rarely down to about 1,000 m). I had hoped you might have taken the photo higher above El Tanque, rather than below :-) - MPF (talk) 22:49, 7 January 2020 (UTC)[]

Sortkey usage and DEFAULTSORT[edit]

Hello, and first off, thank you for helping out with the rose cultivars! It's a huge mess to manage, almost as much work as an actual rose garden. I noticed you'd added some sortkeys that aren't up to code. Fortunately, it's a small thing that's easy to fix.

  • Sortkeys shall have no diacritics, ligatures, or punctiation--naked letters only
  • Þórsmörk -> Thorsmork
  • æ -> ae
  • {{DEFAULTSORT}} sets a default sortkey which will be used for all categories that don't have an individual sortkey. The template goes above the categories in site code.
  • e.g. François Fancyboy Poshington-Plentyofwealth III -> {{DEFAULTSORT:Poshington Plentyofwealth, Francois Fancyboy 3}}
  • or Rosa 'Honeycakes '89' -> {{DEFAULTSORT:Honeycakes 89}}
  • or Rosa 'Darling' (1966) -> {{DEFAULTSORT:Darling 1966}}.

Most importantly: naked letters for sortkeys! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me anything on my talkpage or {{Ping}} me in a discussion elsewhere. I'm not always active, but I check Commons almost daily.
