Question on license of fossil plants[edit]

Hi Kevmin, I noticed you've recently uploaded several images of fossil plants (Category:Notoscyphus balticus and Category:Rhizomnium dentatum). I think the CC-license needs to be clarified- the images appear to be used in modified form in Heinrichs et al 2015], and Heinrichs et al 2014 which do not appear to have CC-BY licenses. Can you clarify the license, with a link or other evidence of permission? Thanks.

@Animalparty: The images were donated by A. Schmidt after I emailed the authors asking if they would be willing to donate any. I did not copy the images from the papers and modify them.--Kevmin § 23:48, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
In that case, please see Commons:OTRS: If you are not the copyright holder. You should have A. Schmidt email a declaration of consent, specifying which images are released, to; after this has been done add {{OTRS pending}} to the file pages. Animalparty (talk) 00:11, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
@Animalparty: Done and waiting for a reply from Alexander. Apologies, this was my first attempt at asking authors for images of holotype fossils--Kevmin § 05:52, 12 July 2015 (UTC)


Hi Kevmin, regarding this: we put all categories of Lepidoptera families in Category:Lepidoptera, as done automatically by the template {{Lepidoptera}}. The categorization by superfamily comes additionally, but it is too unstable to rely exclusively on it. --LamBoet (talk) 17:45, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Per whom?--Kevmin § 18:17, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
Hello Kevmin and LamBoet
Having all families under Category:Lepidoptera is not the standard behavior in taxon categories.
If you want the list of all Lepidoptera families, you have Category:Families of Lepidoptera which is described in Category:Lepidoptera + is filled automatically even if {{Lepidoptera}} is not used.
Clearly there is no need to have all families also in Category:Lepidoptera
Regards Liné1 (talk) 06:57, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi Liné1 and Kevmin,
OK, but if you think we should switch to having only superfamilies in Category:Lepidoptera, then let's make the change for all family categories at once, in a consistent way...
As hinted above, I am worried that this will not be straightforward, because the superfamily-level classification has been evolving a lot lately. --LamBoet (talk) 18:52, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
You are right, we should not change only one family.
I think as a first step, I need to check/update the list provided in Families of Lepidoptera.
Don't you think that we can follow Lepidoptera Names Index for superfamilies ?
Best Regards Liné1 (talk) 10:37, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi Liné1, I just checked a few superfamilies on that website, and indeed, it looks like a reasonably up-to-date reference. It just has a few problems that we can solve case-by-case (for example Hesperioidea is not used anymore, and I am not sure what is happening with Adeloidea=Incurvarioidea).
