    José R Ferrer-Paris commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Katja Schulz: The problem is that some endemic andean butterflies do not show in any of the taxonomies of EOL (for example Diaphanos huberi, Steromapedaliodes sanchezi, and the new species of Redonda). I already have wikipedia entries for some species, for example for Redonda chiquinquirana there are entries in the english (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana) and spanish wikipedia (https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana) and on wikispecies (https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Redonda_chiquinquirana). Will they get automatically included when the wikipedia content gets harvested again?

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @José R Ferrer-Paris: The best way to add a new species to EOL is to upload content for them. Usually, uploading an image to Flickr or adding a Wikipedia articles about the species will do the trick. However, at the moment, the updating of large resources like Flickr and Wikipedia is on hiatus due to some much needed rebuilding of our harvesting code. So it would take a while for the species to get to EOL that way. If you could produce a small resource about the species based on your paper, we could use that to add the species quickly. Do you have images or text that you could upload to EOL for each of the species you want to add to the taxonomy?

    What is the best way to add a new species to EOL? last year we published descriptions of several butterfly species in the genus Redonda (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae), how can I add information about them if they do not appear in the EOL taxonomies?

    Cynthia Cheney commented on "Description":

    @Tracy Barbaro: "Fruits: Dry, elongated fruits (capsules) 1.25 to 3.75 in (3 to 9 cm) long, which split crosswise from the disk at the base to release the feathery seeds. " But the seeds are not at all feathery; the dry fruits or seedpods spring open, being touched or simply ready, with a twist, shooting tiny hard black seeds everywhere. And there is nothing to justify the "split crosswise from the disk at the base ". How can information about such a common plant be wrong here??

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Ahh... Yes, these regionally specific range descriptions vary in their usefulness. If they include a significant chunk of the total range, they can be helpful. This one is misleading out of context.

    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "Distribution":

    I don't think it's confusing it with Leucophaeus atricilla - it is just being parochial, and only mentioning the 0.0001% of the species' range that matters to the Great God North America, the Only Part of the World That Exists (in their viewpoint!). It is correct that Chroicocephalus ridibundus does occur as a scarce winter visitor in the area mentioned; the problem lies in their failure to acknowledge that the rest of the world exists ;-)

    Quite right. More recent data from the same source reflects the distribution you describe (http://eol.org/pages/1049595/data#data_point_42037215) but this Note has yet to be removed

    Larus ridibundus is Eurasian in distribution. This citation seems to be confusing it with Leucophaeus atricilla.
