Image:World.distribution.sauria.1.png[edit]

Hi Sarefo, I was wondering about this picture. According to the map, lizards are found almost anywhere except in the coldest regions, but not in large parts of North America. More specifically, the distribution of Sauria seems to stop with the Canadian border. Is this correct? It seems like a mistake... Steinbach 12:13, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

huh, good question. i have no idea whatsoever about lizards, so i blindly copied the map from the book. however, consulting wikipedia ;) on Lizards in Canada, it says that there are five species present there, all present in southern regions. i can't say exactly how much north they reach, but i guess the map is more or less accurate. if you want to see really bad maps i drew, check some of the spider family pages, especially in the central asian region. actually, i stopped doing maps afterwards, because i saw i'm not very good at it. thanks for pointing this out! --Sarefo 18:20, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Image:Phyllium.bioculatum.male.jpg shows another species[edit]

Hi Sarefo, im sure that the image "Phyllium.bioculatum.male.jpg" with the description "male Phyllium bioculatum from Cologne Zoo, Germany." on Phyllium bioculatum shows not a Phyllium bioculatum male. It is a picture of a Phyllium celebicum male. The differences are seen in the image of the preserved male of Phyllium bioculatum. I'm sure the name in Cologne Zoo may even be wrong. It's typicaly for naming insects in zoos. Can you move the image to the correct place (Phyllium celebicum). greetings --Drägüs 10:54, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

thanks for noticing, i moved the image. btw, is this a P. celebicum male? i can see a brown spot on it. --Sarefo 17:37, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Akio Tanikawa photos[edit]

Do you have something to support the CC license on the spider photos that you've just uploaded (Image:Micrathena.clypeata.-.tanikawa.jpg etc)? I looked at the source page, and I don't see any mention of a license. Other photo pages there say "All rights reserved" [1]. --dave pape 16:28, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

yes, i do. thanks for noticing, i forgot to add the otrs ticket to these pictures, will do this now. cheers Sarefo 16:30, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, you stated on this page that this was a bad name. Could you replace the {{speedy}} template by {{badname|Image:the_good_name.extension}} please?
Thanks in advance and best regards from France.

-- AlNo (discuter/talk/hablar/falar) 12:50, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

thanks a lot! i don't really like adding cats to pictures myself, i think they're nicely at home in gallery pages, and adding taxo-cats only clutters category pages. i've had many discussions about this, and am now at the point where i don't delete them from other pictures, so maybe with time, i'll get there ;) --Sarefo 15:41, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Nice work[edit]

That's very nice work on the butterfly collections at Museum Koenig.Please keep up the good work.Can i send you a most wanted list? Robert Notafly 14:41, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

yes, go ahead :) if i get the chance to get my hands onto the collection again, i'll probably try to get everything anyway, but if you have such a list, i'll take a look at it. --Sarefo (talk) 20:25, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

picture of chimaera[edit]

Hello! Very nice work and pictures! As a passionate ornithoptera-collector, i can say you this specimen is not ORNITHOPTERA CHIMAERA but ORNITHOPTERA ROTHSCHILDI if you type this in google or so, you 'll find i am right about this! Many nice butterfly-greetings, Bart Laurijssens Belgium

you're probably right. i have no detailed knowledge on lepidoptera, just photographed the specimens and tried to update the species labels to today's taxonomy. the label says O. chimaera, maybe this is an old synonym? --Sarefo 12:39, 8 June 2008 (UTC)


Avondale spider.jpg[edit]

A friend on flickr who is up with spiders tells me this pic is actually Dolomedes minor, and not the Avondale Spider at all. Any comment? We can get the image renamed if its incorrect. 203.144.32.165 20:34, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

What fly was that?[edit]

Calliphora vicina Calliphoridae Quite a mouthful.Very nice pic. Any chance of more photos from Koenig Museum? over the Winter? Very best regards Robert Notafly (talk) 18:03, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

well, i'd really like to, but there's a quite complicated and a bit sad story behind these pictures, and why i can't continue at the moment. i'll try my best to get access sometime this year. cheers :) --Sarefo (talk) 20:23, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes O.rothschildi not chimaera[edit]

Bart (Laurijssens) Note above is quite right.Not a synonym though. Either this is a museum error or the label refers to the female specimen above. Robert Notafly (talk) 18:03, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Undetermined.fly.080616.2.jpg[edit]

More difficult than your last photo but almost certainly Anthomyiidae (100% nice pic) I will look again tomorrow Cheers Robert Notafly (talk) 21:13, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Undetermined.fly.080616.2.jpg More comment[edit]

Diptera are very difficult to do from photographs and it is also difficult to suggest a book that will really help.Chinery (Collins Guide to the insects of Britain and Europe is useful and so is Colyer and Hammond's Wayside and Woodland series book (also Collins).These will help with some very common and distinctive flies and the families, but identifying most Diptera is very technical relying on details of bristle arrangement and number (chaetotaxy), pinned flies and the microscope.Very similar looking flies can be in different families only separable by these tiny details.Getting to know the families first is the best approach.For this use the picture gallery at http://www.diptera.info/photogallery.php. I took a look at this site for your fly and came across a picture of Eginia in Muscidae. From the photo I would have identified this fly as Anthomyiidae, a mistake I would have not made with a pinned fly under the microscope. It is possible Undetermined.fly.080616.2.jpg is Muscidae, I cannot see all the features I need to be 100% sure and I have changed certainly to almost certainly.I still think Anthomyiidae though. Keep sending the pics Best regards Robert aka Notafly (talk) 07:48, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Undetermined.fly.080616.2.jpg Best guess[edit]

May be Pegomyia species. Just maybe. Notafly (talk) 07:54, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

thx so far :) i'll make a page for the genus anyway. do you know if Pegomyia or Pegomya is correct? googlefight finds 10,000 hits for the former, but also 7,000 for the latter. i'd say Pegomyia is correct, judging from the name of the subfamily (Pegomyinae), but ITIS uses Pegomya. --Sarefo (talk) 09:19, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry Pegomya is the correct spelling Notafly (talk) 10:22, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

yes, i found that it used to be Pegomyia, but got changed to Pegomya. --Sarefo (talk) 16:43, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Micropezidae[edit]

This is Tanypezidae Thicker femora, legs shorter. A very nice photo indeed. None on the web except one from Cedar Creek. Do you know this site? Another useful one is http://delta-intkey.com/britin/dip/index.htm (better than any single book) I wiil try for an id when I get time to look in the collection here.Keep taking the photos. This is great work. Robert Notafly (talk) 10:22, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Empis pennipes[edit]

Correct.A specialist may differ (I only know the British Isles species) but if so I doubt an id could be done from a photo. Answer rest later Notafly (talk) 10:30, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Tanypezidae[edit]

Tachypora arrogans labelled cf arrogans in another photo on the very useful insektenfotos.de (cf means uncertain but very close)Very cloe I would say but I don't know the German species.Predataory fly No photos on BugGuide I'm sure they would like one Best wishes RobertNotafly (talk) 11:06, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Image:Geranium.columbinum.flower.jpg and Image:Geranium.columbinum.flower.cropped.jpg[edit]

Dear Sarefo,

I corrected and moved your obviously misidentified images of Geranium columbinum (wrong!) to Geranium dissectum. The reasons for this can be found on the discussion pages of the respective image pages. I hope that everything is alright now - except for your personal index page Sarefo/Plants which I do not want to edit because it is your personal page. So you might do this and also check my changes because I only rarely contribute to Wikipedia or the Wikimedia pages - or complain (here or by mail, see http://www.flogaus-faust.de/mail.htm) if you think that moving your images was a bad thing to do. Robert Flogaus-Faust 149.225.36.158 11:41, 22 August 2008 (UTC).

map for ctenidae[edit]

It seems you're up to speed on maps, and as I don't have the capabilities I'd follow your comment below the map and forward the info instead. Basically, in South America, the members of the family Ctenidae are found as far south as northern Argentina. So, where the range border on this map stops in northern Brazil, it should actually extend as far south as northernmost Argentina (see this map of South America). So, the range basically includes all of South America, except entire Chile, the southern 2/3 of Argentina, and parts of the Andes (the regions marked as central, central-sur, meridional, and extremo-sur on this map). Among others, the old map excluded the range of most of the Brazilian wandering spiders, which probably are the most famous members of the family. I hope you will find the time to look into it at some point. Thanks 212.10.69.156 04:17, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

On a related issue, the members of this family are also found on the Bismarck Archipelago (e.g. Ctenus rufisternis), Fiji and the Solomon Islands (Ctenus marginatus). This map perhaps shows the region best (the family is not found on Norfolk, New Caledonia, and Loyautés [Loyalty Islands], but are found on all other islands within the purple lines on that map). Anyhow, these islands may be so small that it barely is worth correcting them on the map, but just in case, as I can see they are grey on the current map.212.10.69.156 04:33, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Sarefo!

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").

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, Sarefo!

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").

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.

Don't remove categories[edit]

Hi Sarefo, i noticed you removed categories several times. Please don't do this. Every image should be in a category. For more information see Commons:Categories. Multichill (talk) 17:27, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

please take some time to see what i really did. in most cases i removed categories that were to broad to be useful. in several cases the files were overcategorized. yes, i think the categorization of taxa is messed up at this point. while there seems to be a "consensus" on this, i'm not sure it extends to species pages. the problem with a "consensus" is people are voting on a broad topic, and the mass is smothering the individual differing needs of smaller projects within the big one. if you're really interested in categorizing species, leave me a note, and i can tell you in detail what the problems are. the bottom line is that categorization of individual pictures, as it is done now, renders species cats next to useless. a new system is needed, and when this is in place, it can get the new cats easily from the gallery pages. cheers --Sarefo (talk) 08:49, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
I see what you really did, you removed relevant categories. I'm pretty sure categorization also extends to the species pages. We even had a vote on that a while back. You should have put the images in Category:Unidentified spiders. Multichill (talk) 12:00, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
i can tell you what is the effect of putting everything into the cats: the new pictures will drown in the mess, and nobody will work on it any more. that's what happened. hooray to principle. please leave me a link to the discussion about species pages, i'm not sure i'm up to date on this. look what i'm doing: i'm sorting the unidentified spiders into family galleries. there they can be annotated, so that specialists have a way to identify them. please, do tell me how on earth i shall now sieve out the new pictures, and give them a chance to be seen. --Sarefo (talk) 12:41, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Commons:Categories vs Galleries is a good place to start searching. Multichill (talk) 21:17, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
thanks for the link. i missed the policy change from july. i think the less bad way, apart from the way i was doing it, is to create subcategories in Unidentified spiders etc. this will lead to lots of redundant work, and nobody will know what to find where, but i guess that's the way it's gonna be for now. hell, isn't anybody working on a system that actually *works* for taxa? for example, create an extra tagging system, apart from the categories, which are at the moment being abused for stuff they are not made for. cheers --Sarefo (talk) 09:29, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
PS: of course it's easier to just undo other's work, but it would be more helpful to put the files into the correct cats instead.
It was not a change of policy, just a confirmation. Multichill (talk) 17:57, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Image Latridius.minutus.-.calwer.46.08.jpg[edit]

This image may be correctly identified (although if so, somewhat inaccurate as is to be expected in a historic drawing). However, the color is radically wrong. Latridius minutus is not green! I have some under my microscope at this moment and they are light yellowish brown. According to descriptions this varies to very dark brown in some specimens - but not green!

File:Hyphydrus.ovatus.-.calwer.08.14.jpg[edit]

Hi Sarefo,

you asked for comments and feedback about the identification of insects in Calwers Käferbuch. According to de:Benutzer:Regiomontanus and de:Benutzer::Prianteltix (two very active animalia editors in the German WP) the image shows clearly not a Hyphydrus ovatus, for a correct identification the resolution is way too low. In en.WP the caption in en:Hyphydrus says Laccophilus poecilus but this looks more like a copy&paste failure.

Greetings, Rbrausse (talk) 07:47, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi Sarefo, wow, you put a lot of work into this. I just came across your map on serpents, and I think it doesn't account for Garter snakes. They are way further up in North America than that line would make me think. For example, I will visit the Narcisse Snake Pits soon to see them come out for the summer, but according to their own article they can be as far north as Alaska. I don't want to mess with your well referenced map, especially since I don't have a good book reference, but I would not want anyone to miss out on Narcisse. 74.216.64.63 13:16, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for making so many fotos available on Wikimedia. I noted some misidentifications of bumblebees among them.

Bombus.soroeensis.-.lindsey.jpg‎ --> the colour form / subspecies occurring in Belgium should be "proteus", which is black with a red abdomen tip; might be B. lucorum, but I'm not sure Bombus.pratorum.-.lindsey.jpg‎ --> more likely a cuckoo bumble bee, Bombus (Psithyrus) sp.

File:Distribution.anura.1.png[edit]

Dear Sarefo, from this image it can be inferred that there are no anuran species in the south island of New Zealand, which is not trivial. Is that really the case? Can you, please, provide me with the source? The article featuring this image (en:frog) was nominated lately FAC, so we try to verify as much information as possible. Thank you very much, Sir Shurf (talk) 11:59, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi, as the description of the picture says, the source is Cogger, H.G & Zweifel, R.G. (1998). Reptiles & Amphibians". ISBN 0121785602. Yes, the white spots on south island and the Atacama Desert appear on the original map, too, I just re-checked. I must say that the purported lack of anurans in southern NZ is indeed strange! The book is not a scientific work, but I think the spots in question were done on purpose. If you want I can provide you with a scan of the original map. Cheers! -- Sarefo (talk) 20:40, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
Hi Sarefo, we dug into it. As far as we were able to check, southern NZ indeed doesn't host nowadays any local Anurans. There are however two introduced species and possibly some extinct species. Thanks for the help. Sir Shurf (talk) 13:13, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

ephippigerinae Eugaster.spinulosa[edit]

Dear Sarefo:

I am quite confident that your picture posted on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Eugaster.spinulosa.1.jpg is incorrectly identified, as I know Eugaster spinulosa from morocco and it is quite different, but I am not sure of what species it is either.

Did you had any new data on it since it was made?

If the picture was made in the Cologne Zoo, wasn't there a species identification on the terrarium?

Best regards Sérgio

Hi Sergio, when I took the picture from the terrarium, I also took the name from the identification tag, so that is what the person putting the species up for display thought was its name. I'll add that the ID is dubious, thank you :) --Sarefo (talk) 07:22, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

It appears to indicate that Linyphiidea is not found on Svalbard. I have found references that indicate that Linyphiidea are represented on Svalbard. This paper for instance indicates the presence of 16 species of Linyphiidea on the archipelago, including at least one representative of the genus Collinsia as far north as Sjuøyane:

Thank you

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 sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. ~ Nahid Talk 01:21, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

"No" source, please help[edit]

Hiya! I found a whole pile of your images here please scroll down to see the Omorgus nodosus sjh.cropped.jpg and following files. Would you be so kind as to add the proper source to these images? This isn't a judgement, merely the template has lost some information and it would be best if you added it, than were I to guess. Thank you! Ellin Beltz (talk) 21:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Calwer's Cantharis pallida[edit]

Betrifft File:Cantharis.pallida.-.calwer.27.16.jpg Stutzig weil das gar nicht nach pallida aussieht hab ich mal kurz nachgeblättert. Das Teil ist tatsächlich im Buch als pallida benamst, aber die Quellen geben das nur unvollständig her: Aus Seite 358 geht hervor das hier Cantharis pallida Fabr. angesprochen ist (womit wohl Fabricius, 1787 gemeint ist), und das ist eben nicht der heutige pallida Goeze, 1777, sondern wenn es nach FE geht sollte das der heutige Rhagonycha lignosa (Muller, 1764) sein. Das passt zwar auch nicht wirklich zur Zeichnung (sogar die eigene Beschreibung im Calwer stimmt nich mit der Zeichnung überein - "Halsschild schwarz"), aber immerhin passt zumindest die Beschreibung dann. Möglich sind im Calwer selbst die Verweise auf Bild 15 und 16 von Tafel 27 durcheinander gekommen (dann würden bede Bilder etwas besser zu den eigenen Beschreibungen passen)? Das Bild muss aber sowieso jedenfalls nicht mit dem heutigen pallida Goeze gleich gestellt werden. Gruss, Arp

Chesias.legatella.dead.caterpillar.with.parasitoid.pupae.jpg => "Pseudoterpna pruinata (caterpillar)"[edit]

Hello, I changed the category of the image Chesias.legatella.dead.caterpillar.with.parasitoid.pupae.jpg to "Pseudoterpna pruinata (caterpillar)". I have taken the same photos and lepiforum.de confirmed that it is Pseudoterpna pruinata. The images of caterpillars of Chesia legatella at lepiforum.de differ considerably. You could adjust the English description of the image.--Slimguy (talk) 08:20, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Dysderidae distribution[edit]

Hello, sorry to bother you, I'm just speaking as you're the author of file:Distribution.dysdera.crocata.1.png. This map does not seem to be accurate anymore and it can be seen for example in BugGuide that Dysdera crocata has been reported through almost the entire United States. This would also apply to File:Distribution.dysderidae.1.png, which has the same coloring in the USA. Since I'm not very good at image editing myself (and I'm also not very experienced at editing things here in general), I thought I'd speak to you instead of trying to do it. Can you update these?

(I've also heard that D. crocata can be found in the entirety of New Zealand while the map only shows the North Island colored. The New Zealand government mentions it's found "throughout" New Zealand. I'm not sure how accurate that is, I haven't found many resources about the distribution in NZ.)

Once again, I'm sorry for bothering you. DepoisDoFim (talk) 23:44, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for notifying me, I updated it. (It might take a while for the cache to show the new version) The range in southern Canada is of course not exact, and I colored the whole of the US. Anytime you notice something to update, don't hesitate to contact me :) --Sarefo (talk) 05:55, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
