en:Patanga succinctaEdit

(Net support = 6; Against = 12.5%)

Patanga succincta, the Bombay locust, is a species of locust found in India and southeast Asia. It is usually a solitary insect, and it is only in India that it has exhibited swarming behaviour. The last plague of this locust was in that country between 1901 and 1908 and there have not been any swarms since 1927. It is thought that the behaviour of the insects has altered because of changing practices in agricultural land use.

  Comment @Sewepb: "Not easy to translate": That is your comment to six of the suggested articles, for the time being. Perhaps you should translate from another language than English!? Deryni (talk) 12:54, 15 December 2019 (UTC)

en:Genovese sauceEdit

(Net support = 5; Against = 0%)

Genovese sauce is a rich, onion-based pasta sauce from the region of Campania, Italy. Likely introduced to Naples from the northern Italian city of Genoa during the Renaissance, it has since become famous in Campania and forgotten elsewhere. The sauce is unusual for the long preparation time used to soften and flavor the onions.
