Report images in the Gallery with the wrong scientific name
 
Is there a place where one can report images in the Gallery that need changing of the scientific name? The latest example is Tyto capensis where all eight images is photographed in Phillipines and therefore have to show Eastern Grass Owl Tyto longimembris. The reason of course for the confusion is that all grass owls used to be just Grass Owl = capensis.

Cheers
Niels

I've amended the names on these. Best place for posting these changes would likely be here. I'll pick up anything added to this thread.

Don't know if this is the right place to mention this, but while editing the photo link for Chestnut-fronted Macaw - the link shows photos in the gallery of Arctic tern.

Lol! It brings back all sorts of spcies! In fact it looks like every gallery entry with 'several' in the text has been picked up on the search! Scientific names is Ara 'severa'!

The searches would be better if they searched only the Scientific name as they used to do. It may be one of the search issues that will be sorted with the new upgrade to the Gallery in a couple of weeks.

Ara is likely not searched for, as it only has three letters! This is one of the cases where it would be better to search for the common name.

I think that if there was a possibility for adding qualifiers to the GSearch, that would be better. By qualifiers, I mean for example "only search scientific name section" or "search for this string 'Ara severa' instead of searching for the individual words". I think limiting the GSearch to only the scientific name part means that GSearch cannot be used in the Location section.

By the way, about a week ago, clicking the link for great blue heron produced several Great egret with the wrong scientific name.

I've changed it to search by the English name instead, which appears to have solved the problem.

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=146489 has to show an image of the Pallas's Sea-Eagle, even though a variant common name has been used and no scientific name is given. I will therefore upload it to Opus.

Typo in this one http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=40850 with Pteroglosus inscriptus instead of Pteroglossus inscriptus

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=139938 has Apterix instead of Apteryx for genus name. In common name, it should have Southern Brown Kiwi instead of just Brown Kiwi.

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=114568 should have Stewart Island Southern Brown Kiwi as Keywords instead of only Stewart Island Kiwi. (Stewart Island Kiwi is a subspecies, not species)

Thanks

Both of these should have been Pericrocotus ethologus: http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...c/limit/recent, http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...c/limit/recent

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=25872 shows a ferruginous hawk Buteo regalis but the scientific name is for prairie falcon ;)

Can we use this thread to report good images without a scientific name? For example, IvoZafirov has a nice image of a Lizard Buzzard Kaupifalco monogrammicus athttp://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=71282, but a Gallery search from Opus would not pick it up.

Thanks for that Alan, I've amended the name :t:

Yes, this thread is the ideal place for these.

I've located c.20 new photos of species new to Opus over the last week just by going through particular Member's Galleries and adding and/or amending scientific names. It's a real shame the search links aren't set up for common name as well - though even that wouldn't pick them all up.

At least it's a little project to keep me busy now I'm retired ;)

njlarsen Saturday 27th October 2007 02:42

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=53320 is missing the scientific name, which should be Megascops colombianus

Thanks Niels, it's updated :t:

The Bishops of MSHooper http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=109798, http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=113598 and http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=113599 look like Euplectes franciscanus (Orange Bishop or Northern Red Bishop).

Also, the photo in Opus (and Database?) for Orange Bishop is actually an orange-coloured Red Bishop (Euplectes orix).

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=32172 and http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp/photo/32169 are Collared Sunbirds Hedydipna collaris, not Variable Sunbirds.

The "View in Opus" link from http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=127279 does not work because there is a full stop at the end of the scientific name.
