When used with the "Redirect category shell" (Rcat shell) template:

Template {{Redirect category shell}} may be used to add one or more rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


Parameters currently supported and the resulting categories are:
Switch parameters supported
Parameter Category
crustacean Category:Redirects to scientific names of crustaceans
fish Category:Redirects to scientific names of fish
fungus Category:Redirects to scientific names of fungi
insect Category:Redirects to scientific names of insects
plant Category:Redirects to scientific names of plants
reptile Category:Redirects to scientific names of reptiles
spider Category:Redirects to scientific names of spiders
(none) Category:Redirects to scientific names

Unrecognized switch parameters will place the page into the category Category:Redirects to scientific names using unknown values for parameter 1.

  • To sort to the basic category, place this rcat on a redirect page (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to scientific name}}
{{R printworthy}}
Template {{Rcat shell}} is an alias for the Redirect category shell template, which may be used to add as many appropriate rcats as needed, usually from one to seven, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R to scientific name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat only to tag mainspace redirects to scientific names of organisms. If the redirect is to some other scientific or technical name, then use {{R to technical name}} instead.
  • This rcat automatically populates both Category:Redirects to scientific names or one of its subcategories and Category:Printworthy redirects. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. Redirects from common names of organisms to their scientific nomenclatures are usually suitable for a printed version. In other words they are usually printworthy. For those such redirects that are not printworthy, set the parameter |unprintworthy= equal to "true" in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R to scientific name|unprintworthy=true}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
or if used undividually:
{{R to scientific name|unprintworthy=true}}
That will suppress the Printworthy redirects category and populate Category:Unprintworthy redirects.
