Which automated taxobox template should I use?Edit

The decision is based on the "target taxon" – the taxon on whose page the automated taxobox will appear.

  • Is the target taxon a virus or other subcellular entity?
    • YES – use {{Virusbox}}
    • NO
      Is the target taxon another kind of organism, living or extinct?

In very complicated cases, it might be easier to use a manual taxobox rather than asking for help automating it.

Please remember: There's not yet consensus to convert all taxoboxes to automatic taxoboxes. Please use your discretion when converting: and always preview your edit before saving.
