taxon name (P225)Edit

Please don't change taxon name (P225) at will. Create a new item and move sitelinks instead. Thx. --Succu (talk)

Hi. This is the same taxon, but after the revision of belonging to a genus. It's natural in biological taxonomy. Systematics are dynamic and biologists make adjustments. In this case, the publication Helgen et al. 2009. Do not withdraw changes, because the name Spermophilus beldingi is in the current edition of ITIS marked as invalid (obsolete). Look here: valid. Spermophilus beldingi is marked as a synonym only.
Look also at: Kristofer M. Helgen, F. Russell Cole, Lauren E. Helgen & Don E. Wilson: Generic revision in the Holarctic ground squirrel genus Spermophilus. Journal of Mammalogy, 90, S. 270–305, 2009. My edition was an update of the same taxon. Jacek555 (talk) 05:52, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Please have a look at Wikidata:WikiProject_Taxonomy/Tutorial how we manage such thinks here. --Succu (talk) 05:57, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
BTW: The taxonomic treatment in Generic revision in the Holarctic ground squirrel genus Spermophilus (Q19831713) is already here (see User:Achim Raschka/Helgen). --Succu (talk) 18:46, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
