    @Bob Corrigan - Entomologists, at least, tend to specialize at the family level, and catalogs are most frequently issued at that level, although some smaller Orders may also be cataloged at once.

    Michael Caterino commented on "EOL Curators":

    I've been able to set the preferred classification (ITIS) for the family I curate, but I see now that that preference is pinned only to the 'Histeridae' page. Is there any option to enforce that classification for all subordinate taxa? I see the dangers here, if you happen to curate 'Animalia' or something like that, but for lower level taxa it would be nice to be able to do this once, not for every included taxon. Thanks, Mike

    This is not a Staphylinid. Probably a cantharid.
