    @Newton Filho: Hi Newton, I've changed the association of the picture from D. marsupialis to D. virginiana as you've indicated. And you're right, it sure is a beauty.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Distribution":

    @Hartwig Dell'mour: Hi Hartwig, I've looked at other sites and I've discovered "Husab Sand Lizard" as an other common name for this taxon, but without a description of why it was so named. Accordingly I've changed the English vernacular name for this taxon to Husab Lizard, while leaving the other vernacular name in the system as a reference.

    That is the most awful name for a species that I've ever seen. Wow.

    Bob Corrigan commented on an older version of Aspidotis densa (Dense Lace Fern):

    @John Game: John, Adding an association to an image is easy - at least, we thought we designed it to be easy. Look up to the upper-right hand side of the object page, just to the right of the photo - you'll see "In the latest image" and to the right a link that reads "add association". Would you like to take it from there, or would you like me to do it for you and walk you through the process? Don't worry, you can't break anything.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Brief Summary":

    Sam, this is much to complex to be a brief summary, and it lacks a basic introduction to the taxon right up front. I'm going to hide it for now, please revise it into something more compact, and feel free to add the other content to additional text objects. Thanks for the work.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Alternaria alternata":

    This article really should be broken into a number of separate articles, each with its own heading. The "brief summary" should be "brief" - starting with a description of what the taxon is: for example, the following para would be a great way for the reader to be introduced to it: Alternaria species is a hardy fungus and can live in extreme conditions. Alternaria alternata can pass the winter in the soil, seed, infected crop debris or perennial host tissue, such as bark, nodes, and scaly leaves as mycelia and or conidia. Some strains can produce survival structure, microsclerotia, to resistant the unfavorable condition.

    We've got a really good EOL Collection on pollinators - I saw you added Bombus, so you might find that interesting. Thanks!

    We have a huge collection of squirrels here at the Smithsonian, and our North American Mammals page for the eastern grey squirrel is also pretty good - give it a look.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Abigail Creamer's Watch List":

    I see you've figured out how to create a "collection" of collections on EOL. You can move collections around too, give that a try.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Common RI Insects":

    The University of Rhode Island has a good brief factsheet on Japanese Beetles. It wasn't until a few years ago that I learned their grubs cause all kinds of trouble feeding on roots, not sure why I never associated that with Japanese Beetles. Keep up the good work.

    The Rhode Island Department of Fish and Wildlife has a great website with specific sections for marine and freshwater fisheries, it might be useful for you. Have fun.
