This is a big job for a small team of Editors, so we're asking if anyone could assist with it.


Following the release of the October 2023 Clements spreadsheet, there are a few changes to be made to the affected Opus pages. Basically the Genus name needs to be changed on the species articles: after Niels has done the required work on the Genus pages themselves, he will post into this thread asking if anyone can make the necessary adjustments to the species page.



  1. Change Genus name at the top of the page.
  2. Save the old Scientific name below it, enclosing within two single straight-apostrophes '' (formats text as italic)
  3. Taxonomy: if the species is Monotypic, move on to #5 otherwise...
  4. Change the first letter of the previous Genus name to the first letter of the new one in the subspecies list.
  5. References: Change the old Clements Reference to the current 2023 one: {{Ref-Clements6thOct23}}
  6. External Links: At the very bottom of the page is a row of Categories. Birds will be one, another should be the old Genus name. This should be changed to the new one
  7. When you save your changes, please fill in the Edit Summary box with something like "Genus changed. References updated"

See this thread for full detailed instructions and description if you need them:
