Thanks KC. I did have this tab open ready to work on it, but got rather busy.

Hi Joe

Hmmmm..... not so simple, this one. Before changing them I checked with Avibase and there are several instances of this spelling having been used over several authors, including Clements, Howard and Moore and the IOC.

https://avibase.bsc-eoc.org/species....C652E6EB81E01F

A similar problem occurred with some kingfishers (Todiramphus/Todirhamphus comes to mind).

Might be an idea to look back at that one to see how it was handled?

Hi again Joe

I've now amended the GSearch, and it seems to work OK, finding both versions of the name.

Just needs a note now on the article and maybe the Genus page two explaining the spelling difficulty; and a Redirect.

There is no point editing the images directly, as that may be an ongoing job for as long as people have the relevant lists/field guides in use.

Good job on fixing GSearch. Thanks for that. I had to make a redirect for the correct spelling to link correctly to Opus. The genus page already had the correct spelling, but the Opus page did not. Up to you whether to correct the old gallery contributions. I'm not sure I see a downside to it. Most of the newer images coming in to the gallery have the spelling correct.

Thanks again.

Once the Re-directs are in place, there's really little point in doing the amendments on the Gallery pictures Joe. You'd be surprised at how long some of the 'old' names continue coming in.

The 'downside' for me is just time.... I've a bit of a backlog of work to be done, and it really isn't necessary now.

The "Giant Petrel" here has the scientific name for the Imperial Cormorant. Scientific name should be Macronectes giganteus. English name "Southern Giant Petrel"

Eastern Spot-billed Ducks need changing to Anas zonorhyncha.

The following Eastern Spot-billed Ducks (Anas zonorhyncha) have the incorrect scientific name Anas poecilorhyncha which is the Indian Spot-billed Duck:

OK Joe... I can't do it straight away, but I'll work through them.

Or... perhaps if I start at the end, maybe someone else could start at the beginning 'till we meet up?

Thanks, Delia!

The following are reported as Phalacrocorax capillatus. I believe they are Phalacrocorax carbo.

These are still misidentified. Any chance somebody with editing privileges can fix?

Great. Thanks Delia! They are all still listed as Japanese Cormorant though. Should be Great Cormorant.

Typo in scientific name. Should be C. cayennensis or (better yet) Patagioenas cayennensis

Done.

I also amended the GSearch to allow for both scientific names. We don't normally change the one used by the OP when it is a name that has been accepted in the past and we have a Re-direct set up.

Thanks so much. Just came across this:

https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sh...p?photo=502675

It is a Turkey Vulture, not a Lesser Yellow-headed.

Thanks Delia. Here are some more:

https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sh...p?photo=158768

Needs to be corrected to Trogon chionurus, not Trogon viridis because of the White-tailed Trogon split.

And these three are incorrectly listed as Trogon violaceus:

https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sh...p?photo=384162
https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sh...p?photo=432641
https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sh...p?photo=446956

They need to be corrected to Trogon caligatus because of the Violaceous Trogon split.
