    @Michаel Frаnkis: The supplier (NBII) is not an active project anymore, so there's nobody on their end to update the data. This was a one-time salvage of the open access portion of their media collection. I didn't realize you could id this image to species. In that case, it may be worth adding a trusted taxon association for J. asheii. The problems with the coordinates are documented in the comments now.

    @Katja Schulz: Thanks! Any way of getting back to the supplier to get its details corrected? Tons of Juniperus pics, but not so many of J. ashei with cones like this one.

    @Michаel Frаnkis: Thanks, I have merged "Juniper sp." with Juniperus and untrusted the image based on the misleading coordinates. We've got tons of Juniperus images.

    A typo in the scientific name of this item has created a superfluous EoL page:
    http://eol.org/data_objects/26486969
    Should of course be Juniperus sp., not Juniper sp.; for species, it is Juniperus ashei
    The latitude and longitude given are also incorrect (in the sea off west Africa, not in Texas!!)

    @Jakob Fahr: Sorry, not yet. Harvesting is currently delayed all around as our servers are being relocated. Hopefully, things will be back to normal soon.

    @Yan Wong: Good question, Yan. It's rare for partners to elect not to post a source url, but it's not required, so we do have a few media like that. In the attribution section, only license and owner (or Public Domain designation) are required.

    How come this doesn't have a source http://eol.org/data_objects/19888582 . I thought all images had?

    @Katja Schulz: Any solution for getting the iNat picture harvest going again?

    Hi everyone! I've added a bunch of synonymies and proposed changes, could someone carry these out where deemed appropriate? http://eol.org/users/77958/newsfeed/comments

    @Sarah Miller: Yikes, thanks Sarah. It looks like the last harvest got stuck. I'll see if we can get this going again.

    I was just browsing and noticed that the i naturalist image collection (http://eol.org/collections/36789) has not been updated in 4 months. Any suggestions on how to refresh that collection.

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Katja Schulz: Thanks Katya. Dromius univestis isn't IRMNG as far as I can tell, only GBIF, but perhaps what you said also applies to GBIF. Also the last example I gave is a case where another source (biolib.cz) has the data too, but the IRMNG name still isn't imported, but maybe the biolib import happened after the IRMNG one? Incidentally, I'm hitting these when trying to map OpenTree IDs to EoL page IDs (http://yanwong.me/?page_id=1268)

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Yan Wong: Sorry for the late reply. Had to do some research to figure this out. I think these are probably IRMNG names that don't have a taxonomicStatus, so we don't know if they are valid/accepted names or synonyms. There are over 300,000 of these names in IRMNG, and we are importing them only if we already have the name from another source.

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    I'm not sure if this is a curator question, but I'm coming across a large number of species that are listed on gbif/irmng that seem not to have pages on EoL. I'm unclear how EoL gets data from these sources, but I would have thought that they should be present somewhere here, even if as synonyms. How come we are missing these? Some random examples are Odontacarus mahaplagensis (http://www.gbif.org/species/6915268), Dromius univestis (http://www.gbif.org/species/5735634), Choniangium algericum (http://www.marine.csiro.au/mirrorsearch/ir_search.list_species?sp_id=11555599), and so on. There are others which are present on these databases but which have only made it to EoL via a different route, e.g. Brachistosternus andinus (http://www.marine.csiro.au/mirrorsearch/ir_search.list_species?sp_id=11622346 but only on EoL via BioLib.cz).

    @Yan Wong: Yeah, we've mentioned that to the partner before, but just to keep our own house clean, I did a search for those and hid those I found, about 30. Please go ahead and hide or untrust any others you see. Leave a comment about the license. Cases like this are thankfully rare.

    Yan Wong commented on "EOL Curators":

    Worryingly, this image: http://eol.org/data_objects/19886579, although very clearly marked as copyrighted etc. has found its way via EOL China Regional Center into EOL marked as CC-BY-NC-SA. It took me only a few seconds to verify that it is not distributable in this way (http://www.arkive.org/greater-mouse-eared-bat/myotis-myotis/image-A14235.html). Can someone have a word with whoever is putting these up?

    @Katja Schulz:

    Yep, keeping (but unpublished) seems reasonable to me too. I wonder if we should remove them from the collection to ID, though, as we can't curate unpublished images anyway!

    On the same topic, I suspect that there may be wikimedia photos which become unpublished because they are shuffled down into a more specific category (e.g. xxx in Kruger National Park) which has no explicit taxonomic information. We can get these back by adding the correct taxonomic info on commons (e.g. see what MPF and I have done at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Milvus_milvus_in_flight), but there isn't currently a way to keep track of when this might be needed. Just something to ponder over.

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Jennifer Hammock: Yes, we should really keep these pics published on EOL even if the license changes at the source. It's perfectly legal, and supported by most contributors I have talked to. But we've never gotten around to changing the code for this. Jen, I think you had some concerns about keeping images that disappear from partner resources.
