    Kent McFarland commented on "EOL Curators":

    Its not clear to me how iNaturalist submissions show up on EOL. If I enter a photo of a Xylocopa virginica on iNaturalist, will it be part of that species account on EOL? Slightly confused here. In other words, instead of just putting photos into Flickr and sharing with EOL group there, is it actually better to go through iNaturalist and then the photo as well as the record location will be shared? And, will or is all this shared with GBIF? I searched around to see if there was information on this, so if I missed it, please just point me to the material so you don't have to waste time on this. Thanks everyone.

    Kent McFarland commented on "EOL Curators":

    I was wondering if there is a way to have local or regional species pages in which a regional curator could allow people to be curators of those pages or sections to help create local content for species. So, for example, we have a project called the Vermont Butterfly Survey. We spent 7 years collecting about 40K records of butterflies and other information across our state. We are about to create species accounts on our web page for each species in a wiki environment that would allow all our volunteers and knowledgeable people to edit them when new observations or data is found. For example new high counts, new host plant, earlier flight date found, later date, etc. Anything that is Vermont-centric about the species as well as Vermont photos. So I started to wonder if this would be better on EOL if possible rather than on our own wiki-pages. Some section for each species or perhaps a whole separate part for each. Is something like this possible or already exists? We are working on other groups now, such as bumblebees and it could go on and on for us here in Vermont. Thanks
