    And something seems to be going on with the rating system also. It does not seem to be taking any input.

    All of a sudden, the 'detail' article that I pick to show on the 'front page' will not show up, although in the details it shows it having been chosen. For example, I chose to show the following distribuion article for an Andropogon sp. : http://eol.org/data_objects/14812644

    @abdul qayyum: Hello Abdul, My line is tapeworms, not Annelids. If you have an interest in the Platyhelminths let me know.

    Hi @abdul qayyum let me know if you want to try adding photos to iNaturalist and need any help. I'm not sure the level of worm expertise on the site for ID help, but its worth a shot

    @abdul qayyum: Hi, Abdul! Why don't you try some of them on http://www.inaturalist.org/ if you have locations for where you took the photos, or our flickr group if you don't, and wait for community feedback. The flickr community likes fairly high quality photos; this is less critical on iNaturalist if the organisms are interesting. Both groups would consider your profile icon lovely :) If you don't know the species, you can suggest a high level name, like "Annelid". The communities, especially the iNaturalist folks, can help you with the names.

    Katja Schulz commented on "Taxon Clean-Up To Do List":

    @Eduard Solà: Thanks, these are now fixed. Strangely, the Turbellarian taxonomic database has Planaria oceanica in Tricladida while at the same time declaring it a synonym of the polyclad Planaria pellucida: http://turbellaria.umaine.edu/turb3.php?action=1&code=2521 The Prosorhochmus claparedii situation is even stranger. Both WoRMS and Species 2000 have Planaria flava (without author information) as a synonym of Prosorhochmus claparedii and that pulled the flatworm Planaria flava Delle Chiaje, 1822 into the Prosorhochmus claparedii concept. There must have been a nemertean genus named Planaria at some point. In fact WoRMS still lists it as accepted: http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=147038

    @Eduard Solà: WoRMS lists Planaria verrucosa Delle Chiaje, 1829 as a synonym of Thysanozoon brocchii: http://eol.org/pages/587112/names/synonyms That's why Thysanozoon brochii pictures were showing up on the Tricladida page. I have split Planaria verrucosa from Thysanozoon brocchii, so the problem should now be fixed.

    @Katja Schulz: Great! Thank you! I just found more misplaced species pictures on the Tricladida page, the polyclad Planocera pellucida (http://eol.org/pages/587106/overview) and the ribbon worm Prosorhochmus claparedii (http://eol.org/pages/586833/overview).

    @Eduard Solà: Leptoplana tremellaris images should now have cleared out of the Tricladida media collection. This was due to confusion between Planaria tremellaris Grube, 1840, a tricladid, and Planaria tremellaris (Müller OF, 1773) which is apparently a synonym of Leptoplana tremellaris.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: OK thanks. I figured the scientific illustrations were fine (especially BHL ones), but seeing postage stamps and coins is always amusing. :)

    @Deniz Martinez: Yes, mark them as trusted and visible (assuming they are correctly identified!), but you can give them a low rating (one or two stars), so they appear toward the end of the images list.

    Deniz Martinez commented on "EOL Curators":

    I run into a lot of images that are drawings, or even postage stamps...i know that for some rare/extinct species this is all we have, but what is the general protocol for such images when there are plenty of images of live animals? Do I still mark all of them "trusted" and/or "visible"? Thanks.

    @Thomas Horn: Cream Wild Indigo (Longbract Indigo), one of the false/wild indigos, which are part of the pea family. They all have that distinctive pealike flower, most species can be easily distinguished by their flower color (blue, yellow, white, and for these, well, cream). I'm more an a zoology person usually, botany is a secondary interest, so of course I double-checked this flower in my field guides and online to make sure I got it right. ;)

    @Deniz Martinez: :-) So, the flower we are talking about, what species is it supposedly from ? And what are the key features that distinguish it from related species ?

    @Thomas Horn: Ok, I had more time to look up the image review process, and see that is available to full and master curators only...I don't have a worklist tab visible since I am still an assistant curator. (I'm still an undergraduate student, not sure if and when I can apply for full curator just based on my stats here? LOL) But I do know this flower, and those images all look correct to me...
