    @Scott Ellsworth: If you only know the genus, you should use the genus tag, i.e.: taxonomy:genus=Belotelson Let me know if this is not clear. For more information on tagging, please see: Frequently Asked Questions about EOL machine tags.

    Oh my gosh. Does it not work if you only tag the genus name? Is there a way to tag if you don't know the species name? (Use "sp." or something?)

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    Scott, in this particular images you are using a binomial tag, which is reserved for two-part names (i.e., Genus species) but only provide the genus name. In cases like this, you should use the genus tag, i.e.: taxonomy:genus=Belotelson For more information on tagging, please see: Frequently Asked Questions about EOL machine tags.

    Thanks Cyndy. Here's a link to an example that doesn't work: https://www.flickr.com/photos/113949770@N03/15613634478/. I'm hoping I can learn what's different about that one as opposed to one that did get imported correctly like https://www.flickr.com/photos/113949770@N03/14027441436/.

    @Scott Ellsworth: Michael is right, there's a computer program that should bring everything into EOL that meets the requirements. If you can give some examples of photos that you think should be harvested that aren't, the EOL team can follow up.

    @Scott Ellsworth: If the photos are properly tagged, then they are imported automatically, provided they also carry a suitable Creative Commons license. Best to check if they are licensed, and also check for any typos in the machine tags.

    Scott Ellsworth commented on "EOL Curators":

    I should clarify. I know how to properly tag photos in Flickr, and some of my images have ended up on the proper EOL taxon page, but some haven't. I was assuming curators were the ones who took images from Flickr and approved them for EOL pages.

    I'm a brand new assistant curator. Can someone please explain how to import images from Flickr to a taxon page? Thanks.

    @Katja Schulz: At some point Yan Wong wrote code that could fix this problem, at least for some images. Katja, see DATA-989. Maybe it has broken or needs to be run again. Or they need to be added to this collection first: http://eol.org/collections/27159/ (I can make Katja and Benjamin manager rights to this collection).

    Katja Schulz commented on Katja Schulz's newsfeed:

    @Benjamin J. Crain: You must have rotated these on Flickr after uploading them or allowed Flickr to auto-rotate them. This means that the original file is still sideways when you download it. Check it out: https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8369/8469148788_c614cf8c44_o_d.jpg Unfortunately, we don't have the tools to fix this on our end, so the only thing you can do is to upload a fresh copy of the image that is oriented correctly as a new image. Note that replacing the original of the old image will not work. Once an image has been harvested from Flickr, EOL updates image data when they change, but not the image file itself.

    @Benjamin J. Crain: We can separate Trichosalpinx minutipetala from T. memor. Can you give me the full reference for Fernández & Bogarín 2011?

    Hello Katja, One final question (I hope), the photos for Microchilus plantagineaus are appearing sideways. They are normal on the flickr account. Any way to fix this?

    Benjamin J. Crain commented on "Katja Schulz":

    Hello Katja Thank you for the quick answer. I had no idea about the quotes or the synonym connections! It is strange though, because I have done it that way in the past and it has worked for most of the species. Anyway, I really appreciate your help!!! Cheers, Benjamin

    Katja Schulz commented on Katja Schulz's newsfeed:

    @Benjamin J. Crain:

    There's a problem with your machine tags. You should use either binomial tags OR species tags, but not both. Your binomial tags are not valid. It looks like you didn't put quotes around them, so the species name got separated from the genus name. If you use binomial tags, you should always enter them like this, with the quotes: "taxonomy:binomial=Galearis rotundifolia"

    Also, you don't need to add machine tags for synonyms. Those are already in our database: http://eol.org/pages/1113312/names/synonyms, http://eol.org/pages/1134345/names/synonyms

    Hello, I also see that there seems to be a problem with the Anacamptis fragrans page, and again, photos with the appropriate tags/groups/copyright don't seem to be showing up. Cheers Benjamin

    Hello, I am not sure if I am contacting the right person, but I am trying to upload a photograph of Galearis rotundifolia to the system and it does not seem to be appearing. I have attached it to the group and there are several tags associated with it (species, genus, binomial, family) and even tags for its synonyms but it does not appear in any of them. Please let me know what I need to do to fix this. Thank you! Benjamin Crain

    @David Illig: Yes, those stripes look pretty orange to me. If you change the machine tags on your Flickr photo, the revised taxon association will be harvested by EOL within a day or two.

    Hello, Ms. Schulz, I am concerned that the caterpillar that I submitted and that was accepted as Anisota peigleri, Peigleri's Oakworm Moth larva, may in fact be Anisota senatoria, Orange-striped Oakworm Moth larva. Thanks! David Illig
