To create a new marine species concept you need to type the name of the page where the concept will be stored into the mstConcept form. Marinespecies traits pages always need to contain the prefix Traits:, and will be followed by a suffix which will also be used to create the URI of the concept. When typing in the pagename of an existing concept the autocomplete will list existing pages. It is recommended not to use interpunction or spaces in the suffix of the pagename.
