Here are the notes I took while preparing the eater-bridge-eater article:

I'm not sure it makes sense to make new articles to fix the redlinks for all these related still lifes. However, they do all have unambiguous assigned names on Mark Niemiec's site, and putting them all on the LifeWiki might make it a little easier for people to figure out the standard terminology, e.g., "eater bridge eater" vs. "eater tie eater".
