Alpine and AlpideEdit

Are not the same and cannot be used as synonyms. The Alpine Orogeny covers only structures relating to the Alps, Carpathans, Dinaric Alps and Hellenides. Alpide is not an orogeny. It is a system of orogenies developing during the closure of Neotethys. True, the Alpine Orogeny is Alpide, but not vice versa. Everything said about Alpide has to come out. Material on the Alpine has to go in. There is an Alpide article but it is not "Alpide Orogeny" and rightly so. I put the source and definition of "Alpide" in a note of Delphi on which I happen to be working. Note that the reference is a huge encyclopedia but no article or pages in it are referenced. In view of the fact that this is inappropriately mixed-topic material and the picture is wrong for the title I put the "stub" tag in. I have seen all the Internet copies of this article. Just because something can be copied does not make it right.Botteville (talk) 10:07, 5 November 2020 (UTC)
