    @Malcolm Storey: Work with Jen Hammock to get your harvests going again and fix the "More info" link label. Looks to me like we were waiting for you but I could be wrong.

    @Malcolm Storey: Have I struck a nerve? I have been very impressed by the speed EOL takes my Flickr images although I am still editing them one by one. Can't it just run a spider through your images or something?

    @Jamie McMillan: Hi Jamie, Just click on the "more info" link just above "Latest updates". (Cyndy: I think "more info" is misleading - it should be"visit original website" or something like that)

    Unfortunately EOL hasn't updated from BioImages for almost 2 years.

    @Malcolm Storey: Malcolm I couldn't work out how to get from the EOL page to the Bioimages page showing all the views of that individual. I am also not sure if all your Bioimages views show up on the EOL page. If they don't the one I queried isn't the best one to choose for EOL as it doesn't show the key diagnostic features from lunularia. This could be just beginners confusion.. I'm new to all this .

    Jamie McMillan removed an association between "Image of Selenia tetralunaria" and "Selenia lunularia".

    @Cyndy Parr: OK, Image 6 shows the features for teralunaria. I'm not quite sure if this reply shows up on the right page. I'll look now and delete my suggested association. Still working this site out.

    @Malcolm Storey: Organizing the photos by individual does make a lot of sense and I'll think about proposing that we do that -- but we'd need a way for partners to pass that info to us (not hard -- just a field for a unique specimen identifier). It would also clean up our media galleries -- I've got an idea for how to do that. Give us a year or so to implement, if we decide to do it :-)

    Malcolm Storey commented on an older version of Image of Selenia tetralunaria:

    @Cyndy Parr: Yes Cyndy, they're the same individual. Both EOL and DiscoverLife separate out the individual images when there is a set of related images - I know most people don't organise their images into sets, but they're wrong! :) I always try to take a set of photos of the same individual or collection to show all the features needed to confirm identification. Set size varies but averages 14 over the 84,000 images I have online. IMO, by splitting the sets you lose the confidence in identification, especially for individual close-ups of diagnostic features which it leaves a bit isolated and arbitrary. Presumably when we get GUID's for the field record it will sort itself out.

    @Jamie McMillan: There are other images of the same individual (I think) at http://www.bioimages.org.uk/html/r152230.htm -- does that help?

    Difficult from a photo but I can't see the dark spot on the hindwing and the rear edge of the cross-band on the forewing looks rather straight. You may have got pics from different angles to check. If it is Lunar, they don't seem to have any on EOL so it would be a good thing.
