Subfamily to tribe change needed

The subfamily Dolerinae needs to be changed to tribe Dolerini within Selandriinae to bring BugGuide into agreement with the reference we follow for sawfly taxonomy. I'm not sure what is the best way to notify John VanDyk of this need, but I'm trying to be a good boy and not create a broken link by doing it myself. Thanks!

OK, John VanDyk moved this
You will have to check the info pages and see if any of the text needs to be changed.

Since alphabetical order is used everywhere,
I reordered the tribes in Selandriinae.

I made a couple of minor adjustments.

Sorry we missed this.
We will send a note to John VanDyk

I apologize, but I would like
I apologize, but I would like to once again recall the need for this change. ECatSym does not currently use tribes, but the Dolerus genus is nonetheless within the Selandriinae subfamily.
In addition, as far as I know, the subfamily Dolerinae should be changed to the tribe Dolerini on the recommendation of Dave Smith (in the list of taxa for BG, once sent to me by V. Belov).
