  • Sounds like utter bollocks to me. A Google search turned up no zyzzva beetle either. The same user who created this has been responsible for some other... suspect pages too. Exploding Boy 13:51, Jul 14, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. No Google hits on this supposed beetle.Frecklefoot | Talk 14:49, Jul 14, 2004 (UTC)
  • Misspelled? Try "zyzzyva [[User:Poccil|Peter O. (Talk)]] 17:34, Jul 14, 2004 (UTC)
  • Redirected. Zyzzyva is definitely a beetle. Angela. 18:48, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep Zyzzyva; delete redirect, though. -Sean Curtin 00:23, 16 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • What harm does the redirect do? Angela.
  • Real beetle, keep; the magazine may or may not be worth keeping- 20 years is a fairly long time for a small press literary magazine to survive, so it could be notable for that, and it seems to have carried writings by some fairly major authors (Ferlinghetti, Martin Cruz Smith, etc.)- some of their early stuff, too, that brought them to attention.

    • I only added the bit on the magazine because it was otherwise a sub-stub not worth keeping. It's borderline whether it is notable enough, and could be taken out if the part about the weevil was expanded. Angela. 03:16, 17 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep redirect to correct spelling. -- Cyrius| 00:48, 19 Jul 2004 (UTC)
