  1. Sorry Flavio, Coniopterygidae is not a singular species. we cannot create a species record for it. Posted 7 months ago
    1. I understand Ferdy, maybe someone will identify it ;-)

      1. Sure. But please don't use "request manual species creation" when the species is not known. This emails all moderators and leaves them puzzled, because no species record can be created. Posted 7 months ago
        1. Sorry, I thought Coniopterygidae was the name of this species. Posted 7 months ago
          1. No worries. Remember that a single word can never be a species name. This is how a species name works: genus + identifier.

            Example: Trimezia martinicensis
            The first word is the genus, the second the identifier within the genus. Together, this is called a binomial name.

            Less common, but also possible is a sub species. Example:
            Giraffa camelopardalis angolensis
            First word is again the genus, second word the species, third word the subspecies. Together, this is called a trinomial name.

            Hope this helps.
