Hello!

Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. Siebrand 17:21, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Lightning of photos[edit]

First time someone comments my photos. Thanks.

I originally had a (cheap) Medion MD 6126, but I had read, that it had the best possibilities for Macros at that time. And I got fine pictures indeed. Exactly after expiring the guarantee, it broke down. Then I went to a big chain to have a look and I was totally frustrated by the mass of possibilities. So I went to my old shop, and there they told me, that Medion is now Caplio, and that Caplio R3 is (was at that time) the successor of my spoiled camera. So I had an excessive try and was deeply impressed, how much better the R3 was, and the possibilities for macros really excellent. There were two exceptions: For really small thinks no chance and the lightning.

As for lightning: I built a lamp myself. I bought at a shop a neon-tube in form of a ring, which I will call lampring further on (Philips TL-E 32W/33-640) a starter (Osram St 111) with socket and a coil- don't know the name, (ABB VVG 36/230/[something not readable] Ballast VVG S6-120 CF-30 230V/50Hz). You can get it on Internet too, but I preffered a shop, where a electrician would guarantee that the parts work together. Then I mounted all on a simple wooden board, starter and spoil hidden under a plastic box, and the lampring apart on some strong wires about 10 cm higher than the board (though fixed on the board too) For the camera I built a small table with a hight, that reaches just the level above the lampring and a hole for the objective of the camera. The table is so large, that I can move it enough to place the hole over the center of the ring or more close to its border. Now the camera lies on the table, objectiv in the hole looking to the ground, and I place the objects in/under the ring and the objective above. Now the lamp functions like permanent lightning, and does not get hot but warms up only little and slowly. Disadvantage: the sparkling objects show unnatural "spots of lightning (don't know the exact word, the white spots, German: Lichter)" all round the body. Therefore sometimes I use an additional spot light (Crypton lamp) to give a priority direction of light.

As for small things: In the meanwhile a bought an expensive Pentax K-10 with a 18-55 mm zoom objective. I have it mounted visa versa. that enables me to pictures from 2:3 to nearly 4:1. Of course all the automatic doesn't work any more and the front of the camera is not even, so the camera cannot be put on its front with the objective in a hole, also the distances for sharpness are extremely small. Now I have mounted the camera on a mount for Stereobinokular, so I can regulate the hight very accurately. But the mount is to big to place it on the board, and the lampring is only a little bit larger, so I needed new wires to put it round a mount, but the lampring is just in the way nevertheless, complicating very much all the handling. The whole construction is not at all comfortable.

The little depth of sharpness I compensate with a series of photos and stacking them afterwards in one photo with Combine ZM.

If you give me an e-mail, I can sent you a photo of the table and the board, but the later is partly dismounted in order to serve the new camera. And - by the way, what sort of insects are you specialized in? Greetings --Siga 08:50, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

what fly was that? :)[edit]

hi notafly,

thanks for volunteering to check my fly pics in the feature, i did not find the time yet to prepare them for upload... just wanted to ask you if you can identify this unlucky specimen: Tegenaria atrica feeding on fly. thanks + cheers! --15:48, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

next fly[edit]

hi robert,

i had the luck to get about 30 different dipteres in front of my lense today in about an hour, and wanted to ask you about this one for now: Image:Undetermined.fly.080616.1.jpg Image:Undetermined.fly.080616.2.jpg maybe i already asked and forgot: is there any book i could get to get a good introduction to diptere diversity? i find it really hard to identify their species. another nice thing would be a field guide with good drawings, i found some for beetles, bugs, butterflies etc., but none for flies... cheers! --Sarefo (talk) 22:03, 16 June 2008 (UTC)


Empis pennipes[edit]

Species like this are the reason i'd like to have a complete overview over a genus/family: i guess that this is the only species with feathered legs, judging from the name, but of course i could be wrong. any idea what's that on her back, parasitic eggs maybe? btw, are there any special bristles i should look out for on flies in general? anything that could possibly be caught on film in vivo? --Sarefo (talk) 21:18, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Micropezidae?[edit]

I see these a lot sometimes, they are running on the bark of trees (in this case birch). chinery is the book i'm using for fly determination atm. it's a really great book, but of course, with 300 pages for covering Europe's insect fauna, it's still of limited use. i'll see if i can check out the other collins books. cheers :) --Sarefo (talk) 21:53, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

two more[edit]

this is one of the species that are too uncharacteristic for my untrained eye to determine to family level. probably something common? and then there's this one, cannot find anything like that in chinery, maybe Empididae? btw, it's best if you just answer me on your own talk page, this way everything about one topic is on one page. i didn't know the cedar creek site, it's nice. do you know jim lindsey's amazing Commanster site? about the Tachydromia arrogans: yes, definitely the one on the picture at insektenfotos.de, nice :) cheers! --Sarefo (talk) 17:33, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Tachydromia arrogans (Linnaeus 1761)is in Hybotidae. Somehow it was misplaced in our collection.I deleted the link.Now you must find some.I was a bit tired today.Very busy with some very confusing Allancastria from Turkey and Iran RobertNotafly (talk) 19:52, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Image:Undetermined.fly.060819.1.jpg Lauxaniidae This one, I think, is very common but I can't remember the name.

Image:Unknown.diptere.080619.jpg Ceratopogonidae. No chance of a species name from me. Yes I like Commanster. One problem I have with most sites including Diptera.info and BugGuide is that the name of the identifier is not given leaving some doubts.Cheers Robert btw Hybotidae and Tanypezidae were once in Empididae. If I had my way they still would be.Changes of higher rankings are often wrong and very confusing. Tachypeza was onc close to Tachydromia hence the error in our collections not reorganised for some years.All the best Robert Notafly (talk) 20:30, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Ceratopogonidae[edit]

Only males have the plume antennae. I will add a sentence on this sex difference (feeding female in taxobox WP) and then your excllent immage to the WP page bw Notafly (talk) 20:43, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

male Sapromyzosoma quadricincta?[edit]

i have seen these a lot on leaves in a forest, always thought they are some large drosophilid. is it possible to determine it to species/genus level, or gender? i tried to compare venation to lindsey's pics, but am not sure it is the same. cheers! --Sarefo (talk) 17:40, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Sapromyzidae close to Sapromyza. That is as much as I know Notafly (talk) 18:59, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Syrphus ribesii[edit]

female? i thought as this species eats aphids as larva, maybe she's thinking about laying their eggs there? --Sarefo (talk) 18:10, 20 June 2008 (UTC) Female Notafly (talk) 15:17, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

mating flies[edit]

Two flies, again a species which i would characterize as "undescript Musca domestica-like", ie. i have no idea :). be sure to check "other version" on the pics, i often take several angles if possible. cheers :) --Sarefo (talk) 18:25, 20 June 2008 (UTC) cf Limnophora Muscidae

one more[edit]

Fly.080514.jpg. i have quite a backlog on fly pics, as i almost never had the nerve to determine them... --Sarefo (talk) 18:43, 20 June 2008 (UTC) cf Mydaea Difficult

male?[edit]

Rhagio.scopolaceus.2.jpg (sorry, typo in title) --Sarefo (talk) 13:35, 21 June 2008 (UTC) Male

Tachydromia[edit]

i started a page for the genus, and fetched a species list from the Encyclopedia of Life. While it's a long list, T. arrogans is missing. It appears in the Psyche article mentioned under References (p61), but it's not clear to me what happened to it. i added a second Tachydromia species, but it's probably even harder (or more impossible ;) to identify this one... --Sarefo (talk) 14:43, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

fly with arms[edit]

This fly was running around on a felled tree, and was strangely moving its first legs in the air, like arm, antennae or something like that. --Sarefo (talk) 15:28, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

cf Platypezidae. Any more photos? Definitely NOT Platypezidae Maybe Ephydridae close to Ochthera Post this pic on Diptera.infowe need a specialist Notafly (talk) 22:05, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Empididae[edit]

Several of these tiny flies were sucking the nectar from Myosotis. I have no idea, maybe it can be determined by host plant? --Sarefo (talk) 16:54, 26 June 2008 (UTC) Correct family.Maybe Hilara (a very big genus) Again I need collection access.Keep sendong the pics, Robert (Busy with forensic work this week. All the best Robert.

ah, maggots in carcasses, nice :) maybe you know Mark Benecke? He's from Cologne, too. a friend of mine once had an insect dinner with him, i hear he's really great, does a good show :) --Sarefo (talk) 17:41, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes I know Mark well. I met him at forensic workshops in Bari and Lausanne. He is very clever and very , very amusing.He speaks beautiful German (being from Cologne) so I suppose you do too.Notafly (talk) 12:31, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

some beetles :)[edit]

hey robert,

in case you're wondering why there were no flys arriving at your talk page lately, i've been trying to determine the modern names for the 1000+ beetle species from C.G. Calwer's beetle book from 1876. there are only 16 species that we could not find a modern name for, they are pictured here. maybe you can hit some beetle expert with these? once i'm finished, i'll upload all these pics to the commons :) and i made a poster from the pictures, i didn't manage to upload it to picasa, i'll show you later. cheers! --Sarefo (talk) 01:02, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

That could be difficult.We may have an early synonymy which gives some and I will ask around.However I am going to Rome for August and early September so it may be late September before you get an answer.I will look into Calwer though.Nice illustrations. Have you seen Hymis.de forum? Slainte Robert Notafly (talk) 09:43, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

butterfly book[edit]

hi robert,

the person that originally scanned calwer's beetle book has (among quite some other ones) a new butterfly book from france online. maybe you're interested, the pictures are GFDL so could be moved to commons (although i'd rather not do the work, at least not right now, calwer was a bit time-consuming). cheers! --Sarefo (talk) 13:29, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

many more pics to come :)[edit]

hi robert,

i will very likely have access to the collection of Museum Koenig (Bonn) soon, looks like they let me take pictures of all their specimens, and even let me use their nice equipment :) they have lots of butterflies, but also vast amounts of beetles, and i think quite some dipteres. if you have any suggestions what would be most important for you or wiki, leave me a note :) cheers --Sarefo (talk) 22:23, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

bad news: i talked with the guy responsible for database stuff at the museum today, and he told me he cannot allow a non-commercial license. he was very nice and all, but he said he is part of a community of museums that all are scanning their stuff at the moment, and will put up their own web, and he cannot make a single run with this. i'm totally crushed, also because the other people i talked with before there didn't mention this at all and said it was no problem... i tried to tell him about the possibilities that this kind of politics kills before it had a chance to flower, but my vision didn't get through. they don't understand that isolating the non-commercial world from the rest is essentially stopping their stuff from getting a foothold in the other world, ideally shifting the weight over via viral licenses like cc-by-sa. i'm convinced he's doing the community a disservice, but what can i do... the strange thing is that the boss of the department seems to think it would be ok if i did this. so, there dies my project for the next year. cheers --Sarefo (talk) 00:40, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Notafly!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

Hello Robert[edit]

Hello Robert, Because of your journey to Rhine-Westphalia, where you shurely saw some tropical insects too, I made 4 pics of a Lucanidae, which I got as thank-you-present from a Swiss coleopterologue, whom I showed the Goulandris-Museum for Natural History in Kifissia, Athens. I have no idea, which country or even continent it comes from. Perhaps you or some friend of you knows. At the time they are only in the , not on a side. Hope, you had a good catch --Siga (talk) 13:57, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

I found it out myself (with the help of specialists). It is Rhaetulus didieri--Siga (talk) 19:13, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for "cicada" ID Jimfbleak (talk) 17:37, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

There doesn't seem to be any option to delete images, just to nominate for deletion - is this because en-wiki admin rights don't work on Commons? Also, it would be very helpful to rename files by moving them, especially where the original description is wrong or imprecise. Is there any reason why files must be re-uploaded to give them a new name, rather than just moved like articles are? Thanks for any advice you can give, Jimfbleak (talk) 17:46, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Dumas (talk) 19:43, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

I Notafly, I'm afraid, I've studied Entomology at the university mainly about insects wich have great importance in agriculture. But I'm not an expert as taxonomist, so I can't determine most flies without a good set of keys and a good documentation. Since december I'm writing the articles about Nematocera families in it.wiki using references from documentation available in many websites about diptera. After I read monographies and scientific articles which I found in the Web about a family, I get the knowledge which there wasn't before. In fact before my works in Wikipedia, I knew well about diptera only some Tephritid mediterranean species and I know very little and generic about most flies families (nothing about Sphaeroceridae). So I'm studying now!

I draw the diagrams of wings venation after I read available documentation such as descriptions of families or other taxa and new species in scientific publications and observing the photos or other drawings when are available. My diagrams are not very precise but can be useful to understand the terminology used in the articles texts in it.wiki and to get an idea of wing morphology, because in more flies the wing veins are important to recognize many families or subfamilies. Note that dipterists are too specialized in a few families because the determination of species is very hard and require years of experience: sometimes can be sufficient details as antennae, thorax bristles or wing veins, but often they need microscopic exams of genitalia or citologic exams! That's impossible for a dummy as me. Greetings --gian_d (talk) 21:46, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

wasp[edit]

hi robert,

i seem to remember that you do hymenoptera too, can you at least narrow down this nice animal? flies around with the frontlegs hanging down, along logs in forest near cologne, germany. length i'd say at least 4 cm, but i could be mistaken. i still need to get a system to pre-screen all the fly pics i've taken, hopefully sometime this year; i also still have lindsey's commanster pics on my todo list, will try to do this in the next month or so...

cheers!

very small flies[edit]

hi robert, i think i narrowed these down to Cecidomyiidae (-iinae?); they were really tiny, and four of them were probably laying eggs into a cleft of a grass stem. no idea if these can be determined, but i was also wondering what's protruding from the one in front, i have no anatomical explanation for this. cheers! --Sarefo (talk) 22:22, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

M4 or Cu1?[edit]

Hi Notafly. I have a doubt:. When I drew the diagrams of Nematocerous wing venation, I found that some Authors handle the vein 9 as fourth branch of media (M4) and others as first branch of anterior cubitous (Cu1 or CuA1). I don't remember, but I read that in the evolution of wing venation, CuA1 and M4 are fused. In Hennig (1973) I found a confirm about that.

I think that the choose between CuA1/Cu1 and M4 depends from Authors and the apparent incongruence of nomenclature within the Diptera families is a false problem. But I think is correct in Wikimedia projects use a single interpretation, so I chose to call this vein as M4 or M3+4 in all families of Diptera. This follows Amorim & Rindal (2007) (Phylogeny of Mycetophiliphormia, with proposal of the subfamilies Heterotrichinae, Ohakuneinae, and Chiletrichinae for the Rangomaramidae (Diptera, Bibionomorpha), Zootaxa 1535). So, as you can see, I handle the base of CuA1 as m-cu (Amorim & Rindal) and the dm-cu crossvein as medial crossvein (m-m). But I've seen that in Brachycerous descriptions most recent Authors call those veins as CuA1 or Cu1, m-cu and dm-cu, instead of the nomenclature which I use mantaining an uniformity with lowers Diptera. M4 is used only in old works.

What I have to do? Can I use an one nomenclature scheme in all Diptera or use of different schema in Brachycera is better? --gian_d (talk) 05:38, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Which depends on you. But add a note to each file description for clarity.Perhaps an explanation page on Diptera wing venation would be a good idea. But it is a lot of work and technical for Wiki.atb Notafly (talk) 08:25, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes, explanation is a good idea, thanks. Wiki.atb? I don't know, what does it mean? --gian_d (talk) 08:47, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

New version[edit]

Hello Robert, thanks for the compliment. I am just repairing my old photos. At the time, I took them, I did not know how to treat digital pics. The only problem: If I upload a new version, I have to wait at least two days, (often more than a week) until the new version replaces the old one in Commons. Can you do something about that? (To purge does not help). If you can not help, never mind. I can cope. Greetings --Siga (talk) 20:47, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Category:Boloria[edit]

Check out the source code of the species categories you created. The bit behind the pipe symbol "|" will determine the sorting order in the genus category.

(Usually one should use capital letters - e.g. [[Category:Boloria|Frigga]] in this case - to make it easier to read on the genus page. But as I did this on-the-fly, I didn't change all the species categories.) Dysmorodrepanis (talk) 17:41, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

No, use lowercase please. That seems to be what was agreed upon on here. Rocket000 (talk) 19:24, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Actually, in this case the categorization done by {{Lepidoptera}}, so there's no need to add a category manually. Rocket000 (talk) 19:28, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Unsure determination[edit]

Is this Xixuthrus? Mispelled on file [1] Robert aka Notafly (talk) 21:32, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

No, it is Macrotoma (Bandar) pascoei [2]. If you know the locality, it is possible identify the subspecies too.--Vitalfranz (talk) 07:18, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Many thanks. The pascoei specimen is from Sumatra. Now please one more [3]. I am in Italy each year. If I can take photos of any Cerambycidae in Rome Civico Museum of Zoology or in La Specola you may need I will do my best.Or next year send you some lists. Many thanks again Robert aka Notafly (talk) 09:41, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, if it comes from Sumatra, it belongs to the typical subspecies pascoei pascoei (Lansberge, 1884). The other Cerambycid is a female of Enoplocerus armillatus (Linnaeus, 1767) [4]. Thank you for the rest... unfortunately, I will have no chance to meet you in Italy since I'm living in Luxembourg... but I wish you a nice trip there!--Vitalfranz (talk) 11:48, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks you for your correction and for the link. However, I can't understand the way the species are organized in the book, and I can't find the species of the Lasaia genus... I don't have so much time right now (and I'm not on my own computer), but I will check the identification as soon as I can. --Gagea (talk) 17:25, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Green Beetle[edit]

Hi, thanks for your quick response. The length was around 10 mm, but that's a very rough guess after more than half a year. The pictures were taken in Stuttgart, Germany in an urban garden. --Pjt56 (talk) 21:50, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Meanwhile I've looked at other Commons pictures of C.h., on many of them the beetle seems to sit on a peppermint plant. I'm not 100% sure but I think this was also the case with my specimen. Does this help to make the identification more secure? --Pjt56 (talk) 08:56, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Please don't blank pages[edit]

Hi Notafly,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed you blanked Category:Hypatema rhomboidella on Commons. I asume you meant for the page to be deleted, but blanking the page is not the right way to do this. I'd like to strongly recommend to use {{speedy| type reason here }} and add it on top of the page you would like to have deleted; This way it will be placed on a special list that administrators check regularly for deletion. Without this it might take a long time before it's noticed. Thanks again. 00:34, 19 July 2010 (UTC)–Krinkletalk

Hello Notafly, today I have added a small video to the german wikipedia article Pipunculidae. So I also visited this article in English language. I noticed the picture description in the taxobox is "Eudorylaus sp. Male and female in copula", however on commons this photo is described as "Pipunculidae Diptera" only.

Thank you for the Colorado beetle[edit]

Dear Notafly, Thank you so much for your help because it was first really quick and then the nice remark. I looked at your photos: I am in awe, very impressive, very good. And then your favorite painting from Carl David Friedrich! We have some tastes in common. Anyway I also wanted to ask you for advice. I have been downloading some of my pictures for quite a time now but I still don't get how everything works. I read and read the "How to" and everything but other than downloading my pictures, (and since there is the new page to do so, although I give the precise indication that I want to give a license CC0, free for all, the photos appear not to have any license at all) other than that I am not able to do anything else much as I really don't understand all the stuff with adding template, erasing my mistakes, and so on. Normally I am not too stupid but here I really have a hard time. I would like to know if you could give me the place where I could find some help. Something so easy to understand, that even I could get it. And again: thank you for your help with the beetle. Dinkum [6]

Re:Atissa[edit]

Hi Robert. No, I didn't see it, I wrote an article about Atissa in it.wiki but I didn't link any image. But there was some important changes: I left the wiki projects because I cannot watch more that many users have other purposes instead those of wiki projects. In it.wiki (but I think in other projects also) there are too many users which use Wikipedia with ideological political or commercial purposes until get false or falsified contents. I cannot close my eyes and pretend that this does not exist. Cause the community does not accept the idea that some users are bad users and should move away, a few days ago I have requested the cancellation of my flag as sysop and the lock of my account. If the ideological propaganda must be a more important ground plan than some unknown flies this cannot be my project. I'm afraid, I spent five years in wikipedia to get anything (in italian we say un pugno di mosche, "a handful of flies") --gian_d (talk) 12:19, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Still unable to understand how Wikimedia Commons works, any idea where I could get help[edit]

Dear Notafly, I hope I am not disturbing you. The way you answered I thought I might ask you for help. Usually I am not stupid and I have been using computers for quite a time now. But there is this thing with Wikimedia Commons. I can't understand the most simple things. I just don't get the picture (no pun intended). Fact is I am very enthusiastic about being able to see all the pictures from so many different countries on so many different subjects. But until now I know only how to do 2 or 3 simple things: Looking at pictures, downloading mine and that is about it. I have no clue for the rest. An example. When I have downloaded a photo and given it a category sometimes a few days later I have found a better category. So I go back and open the file, click on "Category" and write the new name for this file. But in the meantime, some bot or someone has put a category (mostly very general) and I think the new category I just found is more suitable for this file. I make a preview and see only my new category name on the bottom of the page. But then when I click "Publish", the new category appears with the older one put by someone else. I would like to erase the former category but don't know how to do it. And there is a lot of things like that, very simple that I don't get. I have been reading the "How to" and the "sand box" and whats not. But this does not help me so far because the explanations although very good and certainly very useful don't take into account that the most easy tasks, the very simple stuff is just not explained. When I tried to get help to find out the names of lots of my pictures of plants and flowers I found a page in Wikipedia where they were doing just that: giving names to pictures from flowers. To submit your pictures they said you had to copy and paste a template. Well, I could copy the template but they don't say where to paste it. And then I was supposed to enter the name of my files and giving them clues as where the photos were taken. The template just frightened me only looking at it. So you see I would really need the help from someone or some articles where you really go step by step and explain what must seem so obvious for others and that I don't understand. Here is the address of the botanical help (in French):http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projet:Botanique/Quelle_est_cette_plante Because you see I don't know either how to put a link. That will be all for today. Sorry that I am such a chatterbox. Don't bother to answer if you don't have the time. I can understand that. Best regards. Dinkum

Re. Wimedia Commons for Dummies[edit]

Dear Notafly,

It was really nice to read your messages. First: be assured that I will do my best to give all the information required to find the name of the plants and flowers submitted. And yes, I am French and it seemed a good idea to try to submit my pictures for help in a French speaking (writing) group. But it is not of great importance as, as you well know, the names have to be the latin names used by all botanists. I bought myself a few books to try to find the names (some in French, some in English and some in German). Each book has a different way to look at flowers and plants but in the end I always get the latin name. But unfortunately as I am starting from scratch it is not a piece of cake for me, even with photos and descriptions. I am very thankful that you took the time to give me such good help. For the time being it is late and to tell the truth I am quite tired. I will try to work on the files tomorrow. Thanks again for your very appreciated help. I put the 4 tilde and hope you'll see "Dinkum". Best regards. Dinkum (talk) 20:06, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

I don't know if this list is any good. Just tell me if it is not.

Just for you, the first photo on the list is, I guess, more up your alley. I imagine this spider must be a very common one. All the other photos are about flowers and plants. Thanks again for your very kind help. It boosted my energy to try to do something positive and considerably boosted my moral. Best regards, Dinkum (talk) 16:15, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

You will make the Grant Museum of Zoology category? DenesFeri (talk) 14:12, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi Notafly,

Thank you very much for that category!

I'm sorry, but I think you misunderstand. Not I take those pictures, but my sister Emoke; she just give me those pictures, because in my valley there is not such a museum. I live in Transylvania, and I can't go, to UK and Ireland right now. Altough thank you for the invitation. Best regards. DenesFeri (talk) 09:40, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Wonders of the Musée zoologique de Strasbourg[edit]

Hi Notafly !

I just uploaded a series of pictures taken at the Museum last June (!). Unfortunately I could not get THE hanneton [7]. As this big but brittle beast is not on display, a prior appointment with the curator would have been necessary (which I did not dare to do).

Sorry for the delay,

"Maison Auzoux"[edit]

Hi Robert,It's always a pleasure to read you.

  • The Nikon is a good camera. What are your settings, initially, that are not perfect. Did a test if you work in manual. If you pull in RAW here is no problem because you can changeyour color temperature after the shoot. If you are working directly in JPG you can changebut you have to vary several parameters. The first: the color balance can be modified onthree RGB colors: dark, medium, and light. Then you can finish by the partial de-saturation of a color being careful. If you can shoot, always in RAW.
  • I did not know the paper models of the "Maison Auzoux". Thank you for letting me learn. Iam doing some research to see if we have, in the Toulouse Museum. By coincidence, I'm in Venice, where I made contact with a molding company that is scenography and reconstructions of animals (especially in paleontology) [8]. This is the modern equivalent of Auzoux ... best regards --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 13:44, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I received the confirmation we have no specimen of the "Maison Auzoux" in the collections of the Museum of Toulouse. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 10:35, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Agromyzidae[edit]

remarks Hi Notafly, are you familiar with Agromyzidae? My two actual determination problems are shown in File:F-Ei-2012-05-11.ogv and File:Gf-2012-05-11.ogv, any suggestion about genus? Regards, --Pristurus (talk) 18:28, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Melanagromyza sp - 2012-05-11.ogv I do not think it will be possible to give a species id Gf-2012-05-11.ogv May be in the genus Phytomyza. What is the plant? Have you posted this at Diptera info where you will get a family specialist identification. Notafly (talk) 20:34, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for you remarks. The plant is Sambucus nigra. Milos Cerny at diptera.info wrote (similar to your comment): "Probably Phytomyza sp. Agromyzidae". I think it is a nice idea to use these words in the file description. A clearer id seems to be impossible. Regards, --Pristurus (talk) 22:49, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Horaga onyx[edit]

Hello. I am Alan Cassidy and I am a specialist in S. E. Asian Lycaenidae. You have posted an image called Horagaonyx.jpg, which has now been referenced by several Wiki pages. Unfortunately, I think that the specimens concerned have been wrongly labelled and, in fact, belong to a species from a different sub-family. The true Horaga has 3 hindwing tails and the hindwing does not exhibit an anal lobe. The specimens shown all look as though they belong to the Remelanini of the Iolaini, not the Horagini. Additionally, most Horaga males have a white spot on the upperside forewing, which is missing from the butterflies in the image. Do you have a picture showing the undersides of these specimens? This would help to determine their actual species. It would also be helpful to know where the specimens were captured and in which collection they reside. Regards ACCassidy (talk) 12:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Uploaded extracted images of plates 5 and 6 and added them to wikipedia (we have all the species from Africa except some skippers like I said earlier, so this is a great addition to the articles). Will continue with plates 7 en 8 later. sisenna = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphium_polistratus. nigrescens might be http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protographium_philolaus. Great work!

Rachana jalindra[edit]

Hi, you have uploaded a file of an image from Seitz supposedly showing Rachana jalindra, but the butterfly shown is from the genus Drupadia, probably ravindra or scaeva. I suggest that you have a close look and then remove the picture to Category:Drupadia. Also for the cleaned-up version. If you look at the images I have just uploaded to Rachana you will see the differences clearly. Alan ACCassidy (talk) 22:19, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Berber jewellery[edit]

Hello Notafly !

I plan to go to Paris in December to attend another Wikimedia meeting and I'll take this opportunity to see Cheveux chéris and Nigeria. Arts de la vallée de la Bénoué (Musée du quai Branly), maybe also the new galleries of the Department of Islamic Art (Louvre). I won't have much time, but if I see some remarkable piece of Berber jewellery, I'll try to do something. "Parures pectorales" is what you are looking for specifically ?

Ji-Elle (talk) 15:50, 12 November 2012 (UTC)


Hello Notafly !
The Wikimedia meeting in Paris was fine: more than 50 people gathered at the restaurant on Saturday night ! But I wasn't too lucky with the Berber jewellery. The new galleries for Islamic art at the Louvre are mainly dedicated to the Iranian world and the Ottoman Empire, and the Musée du quai Branly had very few necklaces on display at the moment. I could upload only 3 pictures. Peut-être la prochaine fois... Bon dimanche !

Sphinx dares - Phalaena dares in CramerAndStoll[edit]

Hi Robert

On Cramer&Stoll pl. 48F (Spinx Dares) you placed a remark about the entry in Lepindex. I think that this is not about this plate but about pl. 310G (Phalaena Dares) that I just uploaded. I removed your remark from plate 48, if I'm wrong please undo my revision.
Btw, I'm still planning to upload the Donovan books ( "Epitomes" of Insects of China and India), but I'm trying to finish first Cramer and Stoll, now working on vol. 4, but there's still a verry big appendix by Stoll!

Cramer and Stoll , Orsotriaena medus and Cepheuptychia cephus[edit]

Hi Robert
Working on pl. 362 C I found the name Doris, already used on pl. 8 B, C. On pl. 8 I was wrong, I'm afraid, I filled in the name from Funet but that refers to the Doris of pl. 362, as you already stated in your note with pl. 8, I replaced it with the Lepindex name [10]. And the there's also pl. 11 C, D ( "(Papilio) Hesione"), but that seems the same as 362C. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
In his French text with plate 362 [11] Stoll describes this specimen as "pareillement une variété de (...) planche VIII fig. B. C.". I added this as a note with my own descr. of plate 362. (Very strange, though, to me they look totally different! And the "pareillement" lacks in the Dutch descr., there he seems quite certain).
By the way, I stumbled on my family name on plate 359 Stenoma seppiana, an unsightly little moth, quite comical!

Thanks for your compliment[edit]

I looked both Insect Collection Methodology and Category:Insect collecting carfully. Great work. Because of your hint I inserted one picture from Insect Collection Methodology in Koleopterologie and I also added a link to both, side and Category. I think Koleopterologie-Sammelmethode does not so much differ from Entomologie-Sammelmethode that we need a new page, whereas History of Coleopterology rather differs from History of Insects. I think, a History of Lepidoptera would also be worthwhile. In fact, I was so fascinated from the fact, that meanwhile you find almost all ancient writings in the net. For instance [12] a link to most Erstbeschreibung. Greetings --Siga (talk) 17:51, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Donovan - Insects of China[edit]

Hi Robert
I just made a Category:Edward Donovan:Insects of China with the title page and plate 1. Beautiful engravings! Please have a look at my descr. with pl. 1, maybe you want to change something (or everything, if necessary!). There is a big difference between the original descr. by Donovan and the 1838 descr. by Westwood. I'm not trying to add accepted names, afraid I would do more wrong than right. Maybe further on with the butterfly plates.
No hurry, we have here at last some sunshine so I'm off to Drenthe for a week. If you don't have time for this at all I'll go on with the plates in the same way next week.

Paris[edit]

Hi Robert!

What a wonderful surprise to read your message. I have not forgotten all the help you provided me at the beginning. I am still what you could call "Syntax challenged" as to my contributions in Wikimedia but I did a lot of progress (there was plenty of room for improvement)!! How are you? Do you by any chance come sometimes to Paris? I would be delighted to meet you. I am happy you liked some of my photos. I take great pride in them. If you need any photos from this city, you can ask me what you would like. I go quite often to the Jardin des Plantes. You are right it is a wonderful place. I went to London a few weeks ago and spent four days in Kew Gardens. It was incredibly beautiful. Best regards. Dinkum (talk) 18:00, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Deyrolle[edit]

Hello Notafly! Yes I know Deyrolle but I never went inside. I took one or two photos of the facade not long ago. I had no idea they had such incredibly interesting stuff on so many topics - among which entomology... I will have to pay them a visit. And of course send me your list of desired photos. I envy you: Rome must be a wonderful city. I never went to Rome but it is in my to do list. I find it is disappointing to have one's photos deleted because of this no FOP rule. And even the Rimini station!! As for the photo of the cat sculpture by Niki de Saint-Phalle: she is a well known artist here and she died in 2002 so I am not surprised they vetoed it. I hope you will be able to go to Greece too. I love the islands especially. Best regards.Dinkum (talk) 04:59, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Again a Phora?[edit]

"Happy Diwali!"[edit]

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning behind it is "the awareness of the inner light". It is the belief that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil” refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening come compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings Satcitananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light. While the story behind Diwali and the manner of celebration varies from region to, the essence is the same – to rejoice in the Inner Light! And this year Diwali and All Souls' Day come together to fully defeat the Evil! "Happy Diwali!"JKadavoor Jee 06:16, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Giardino dei Semplici[edit]

Hello, it took quite a lot of time, but I finally took a picture of the cycads greenhouse in the Giardino dei Semplici in Florence. I will upload it soon. I can't remeber if you planned to visit Florence soon of if you did already. If you are seeing the greenhouse make sure to reserve it to open, I hjad to ask and they let me see it just beacuse I did not ask to enter. I will link you the image files soon. --Sailko (talk) 20:23, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
