It's common for entries for taxa, especially extinct ones, to have at least two suitable images: a photo/illustration and the skeletal remains/fossil for it. It would be good to have both in their relevant entries. NMaia (talk) 06:08, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment In general, people prefer just one value in P18, so a selection with a distinct property could indeed be helpful. I'm not entirely convinced by the suggested wording, but I'm not really a specialist in the field. --- Jura 13:34, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
