    I did not find any information about this habitat - but the Hemidactylus frenatus is in our house here in the UAE.

    Please bear with us on the March of Snails on the homepage. A souvenir of the server migration, the development team is aware and will look into it shortly.

    The march of life photos on the front EOL page seem rather shell-heavy at the moment - too much to be a coincidence, I suspect.

    Thanks Jennifer (the reply button seems to have gone awol). Media is starting to look more rational. I see that it's still the top page on a Hippocampus search, though.

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "EOL Curators":

    Thanks, Yan! Here is a good place for those reports. One of our classification providers' genus level record was in that taxon concept for some reason. I moved it to the genus concept. The media are starting to sort themselves out. When the dust settles, I think we won't have any images on the jugumus page, so if anyone's got one they can iNat or flickr...

    Hi - just come across http://eol.org/pages/1156551/overview which appears as the first page when searching for hippocampus, and contains lots of images of other seahorse species. I suspect the taxonomy is borked somehow. Where should I report this?

    The authorities differ. IUCN, ITIS use single T, while Clements uses double T.

    Dries Nys commented on "Gallus lafayetii Lesson 1831":

    Is the species name here wrongly spelled ? Shouldn't it be "lafayettii" with double T ??

    @Elza Kala Pap, Since we don't have a page for this hybrid, you won't be able to add an article for it right now. We would first have to get the taxon from one of our content partners. If you create a page for it in the English Wikipedia, we should get it with our Wikipedia harvest. You could also upload your images through Wikimedia Commons.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Thanks for your feedback, Michael. I have created a ticket for this issue, but it will probably be a while before it can be addressed.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    Can something be done to improve the search result suggestions? At the moment they are, and have been for a very long time, absolutely awful, turning up all the least probable results as the top suggestions, rather than the most probable which usually do not appear at all.

    As an example, I had to type out as far as "chamaecyparis lawson" before the obvious Chamaecyparis lawsoniana appeared in the search suggestions; it did not appear even with "chamaecyparis lawso". The search suggestions were instead completely cluttered with highly improbable suggestions.

    What would help is if accepted names were given higher hit status than non-accepted names, and generic names given higher hit status than species names, so e.g. a seach for 'pinus' will turn up various Pinus spp., higher than Spinus pinus.

    @F. Peregrinus: These are Barcode of Life BIN clusters. Not sure why NCBI has more than one taxon per BIN. Looks like a mapping problem that has been solved at the source. It should get fixed once we update NCBI.

    @Kento Furui: We are currently dealing with the aftermath of migrating EOL data and software to new servers. This issue may be related to the migration. It will take us a couple of weeks to get things back to normal. Please check back in a little while and let us know if the problem persists.

    Kento Furui commented on "EOL Curators":

    API hierarchy_entry returns error when the result json is too big. hierarchy_entry gives the entire list of descendants of a taxon. When this list of descendants is too large, it becomes error. Is there a way around?
