Butterflies?[edit]

here it says all which are not Butterflies while the lemma Butterfly says it includes Moths. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A01:C22:CC20:6900:993D:491D:AA70:EB5D (talk) 23:51, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wrong Time period for evolution[edit]

"Lepidoptera differs between butterflies and other organisms due to evolving a special characteristic of having the tube-like proboscis in the Middle Triassic which allowed them to acquire nectar from flowering plants.[3]" thats not true, flowering plants are currently thought to have evolved in the mid-cretaceous, and the source makes no mention the Triassic period that i could find, someone please edit Dailen05 (talk) 16:29, 21 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

What you say makes sense. I followed the reference to this article and my mind is not working well enough just now to understand it. @Dailen05: or anyone else, please be bold and correct the text. Thank you, SchreiberBike | ⌨  17:43, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
i'm new, how do you edit a semi-protected article? Dailen05 (talk) 16:16, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Dailen05: WP:SEMI says "Semi-protected pages cannot be edited by unregistered users (IP addresses), as well as accounts that are not autoconfirmed (accounts that are at least four days old and have made at least ten edits to Wikipedia) or confirmed." You can do some general editing of unprotected articles to get your edit count up a bit, then you could do it yourself, or you can submit an edit request. You might find the Wikipedia:Teahouse helpful. SchreiberBike | ⌨  17:21, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Spongy moths[edit]

This article lists the recently renamed Lymantria dispar moth (Spongy moth) as "gypsy moth", its old name. Moncoposig (talk) 13:34, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Moncoposig: Thanks for the note. I've done the update. But hey, welcome to Wikipedia; you can do it yourself. Be bold! SchreiberBike | ⌨  20:03, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
this page is for some bizarre reason semi-protected, despite it having relatively low traffic and no large draw for vandals Dailen05 (talk) 19:37, 14 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
