Got error message when trying to add a new (old) species

Post by bekateen »

Hi Jools,

Farlowella gladiolus is currently considered a valid species. I tried to add it using the quick add of existing species function, and I received the following error message:
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/webcat/planetcatfish.com/admin/functions/add_species.php:84 Stack trace: #0 /home/webcat/planetcatfish.com/admin/quick_add_species.php(43): add_species('Farlowella glad...', true) #1 /home/webcat/planetcatfish.com/admin/index.php(350): quick_add_species->submit(Object(phpbb\db\driver\factory)) #2 /home/webcat/planetcatfish.com/admin/index.php(297): arn_admin_guts('qas', Object(phpbb\db\driver\factory), Object(phpbb\user), '5.1.1') #3 {main} thrown in /home/webcat/planetcatfish.com/admin/functions/add_species.php on line 84
Is this because F. gladiolus is already a synonym of Farlowella amazonum? I know of other examples in the CLOG where a specific epithet is both a valid name for one species, and a synonym for another, so I'm not clear on why this would be the hangup... in other words, I don't expect that to be the problem.

Cheers, Eric

Never mind, I was able to resolve it. So apparently the error was because Farlowella gladiolus was already a synonym of another species. I deleted the synonym entry, then added the species. Once Farlowella gladiolus was added as a species, I re-added it as a synonym under Farlowella amazonum, and that task completed without problem. So apparently you can have the same name as both a valid species and as a synonym of another species (which we already knew), but you have to add the valid species first, then the synonym after.

Cheers,
Eric

The error should not be caused because the synonym exists already, however I can't see from the error what has caused it.

If a species is valid, it should not have a synonym entry - so have deleted it.

Cheers,

Jools

Haven't had a problem with synonyms or adding species since then (except what happened a couple of weeks ago, which you fixed recently).

Thanks for following up.

Cheers, Eric
