Wikipedia:WikiProject Gastropods

WikiProject Gastropods is a group of people who are working on creating and improving Wikipedia articles about gastropods, i.e. snails and slugs of every kind: those that live in saltwater, brackish water, freshwater, and on land. The project also covers articles on topics related to gastropods, including anatomical features of snails and slugs, malacologists, or other aspects of gastropod biology. Any editor who is prepared to contribute constructively is welcome to join this endeavour.

Taxonomy

edit

For all marine species, Project Gastropods uses the taxonomy in the online database WoRMS or more recent changes, published in a scientific article. Synonyms are to be given alphabetically such as in WoRMS.

Proposed deletions

  • 20 Jul 2024 – Amphorella producta (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by Micromesistius (t · c): Non-notable as a non-valid taxon name. This species is not recognized as valid by MolluscaBase, the most authoritative source for molluscs, nor is it listed as a synonym. It has been deleted from IUCN and GBIF. Thus no major source recognizes it.
