Your wonderful gastropod imagesEdit

Hello Llez, Sorry for the mix-up about the Melo image. WikiProject Gastropods would like to try to work more closely with you because you have created so many terrific images. Please always feel free to post updates or queries or comments on the talk page for our project. Your images are a great resource for us. Thanks, Invertzoo (talk) 17:35, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

POTD notificationEdit

Hi Llez,

Just to let you know that the Featured Picture File:Eustrombus gigas 01.jpg is due to make an appearance as Picture of the Day on June 7, 2012. If you get a chance, you can check and improve the caption at Template:POTD/2012-06-07. howcheng {chat} 19:55, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Your Eustrombus gigas shellEdit

Just wanted to let you know that the shell in your featured image is not in its original condition. The lip has been filed or cut before it was sold in order to make it look neat and tidy. This happens a lot, but it is not the way the lip of a live-collected shell of this species really looks. Take a look at the image here to see how it should look.

About your glorious imagesEdit

Hello Llez, thank you very much as always for your really wonderful images, which add so much value to our articles on gastropods! And thank you for placing so many of them into the appropriate taxon article.

I wanted to say that when you place the image in a species article, especially when the species is in a small genus, it is always worth checking to see if there is an image in the genus article already, or not. Very often there is no image in the genus article, and so the exact same image and caption can be inserted into the genus article, which only takes a minute.

By the way, as you may have noticed, I usually always put in a caption that says "Five views of the [[gastropod shell|shell]] of Xxxxxxx xxxxx". I have been placing some more of your images gradually over the last day or two.

Thanks so much again for any help you can give us with inserting the images, as we are short-staffed as usual! :) Invertzoo (talk) 17:03, 25 November 2012 (UTC)


Thanks Llez for the note on my talk page, and thanks so much for adding your lovely images on more pages. They really add so much value. Although most of our marine stubs are made these days by bot, I have been creating some new stubs by hand so that I can find homes for a few more of your images.

I wanted to say a couple of things: I imagine that you have bought at least some of your shells from dealers, or got some as trades from other other shell collectors? Do you any have favorite books or other sources that you like to use to check on the identifications? I ask because some of the species names for land and freshwater species I could not find using a google search.

I also wanted to point out that named forms of species do not have any taxonomic significance. Subspecies yes, but forms no. if you want to put the name of a form into a caption or description of an image, you need to indicate that it is a form name, otherwise, if you write it as a trinomial name, then it will appear to be a subspecies name. So in the case of forms you need to put Snailus biggus form giganteus, rather than Snailus biggus giganteus. All good wishes to you, Invertzoo (talk) 22:41, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

A reflection in the surface of Cribraria cribraria?Edit

Helo Llez. I think I see your window and you and your camera maybe, and a picture on your wall, all reflected in the shiny dorsal surface of this cowry. Do you see what I mean? Of course, maybe I am wrong. Best wishes, Invertzoo (talk) 00:28, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Hello Llez, thanks for your note and for the list of books. Well, at least I got the window right! Really it is amazing how shiny some of those cowries are, it's as if they were glassed! :) I am gradually putting more and more of your images into articles. Invertzoo (talk) 00:10, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

BarnstarEdit

  The Gastropod Barnstar
For all the good work you Llez have already put into WikiProject Gastropods, creating and uploading numerous really superb shell images, which greatly enhance the value of our articles, I award you this Gastropod Barnstar.

Disambiguation link notification for June 11Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tegula funebralis, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tegula (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Requesting Some German TranslationEdit

Hello, I have a friend here on Wikipedia asking for a translation on the radio show Hallo Ü-Wagen, Ü-Wagen short for Übertragungswagen [de]. Using Google Translate, which admittedly isn't the best, Übertragungswagen translates to "radio van". German Wikipedia translates it to "broadcasting trucks". Since it is a radio show, I feel comfortable with "radio van". "Hallo" is easy, that's "Hello". So, I went with "Hello Radio Van". But I want to make for sure. Can you check my work for me, please? Thanks! - NeutralhomerTalk • 12:19 on April 8, 2019 (UTC)

...and here's the link to the discussion on my talk page regarding this. - NeutralhomerTalk • 12:20 on April 8, 2019 (UTC)

images of gastropods

Thank you for quality images of gastropods, such as Eustrombus gigas, which grace not only many articles and add life to them, but also frequently the Main page, for plant images such as Echinopsis oxygona, for translation help, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
