    Hello Joanna! Thanks for the info - I found even Benedict in 1888 had collected the type specimen from Galapagos...but strangely enough it hasn't been put on the Darwin FOundation datazone yet! But I would be tickled pink if you could send me the article mentioned to my email. I'm wondering how I can send it to you such that it will not be posted?

    @Cindy Manning: Hi Cynthia, Munida hispida definitely occurs at the Galapagos Islands – it was first discovered from there, specifically, off Chatham Island, between Santa Cruz and San Cristobal islands. Since then, it has been found off California and Mexico, south to Peru. A useful reference is: Hendrickx, M. E. (2000) The genus Munida Leach (Crustacea, Decapoda, Galatheidae) in the eastern tropical Pacific, with description of two new species. Bulletin de l'Institut Royal des Sciences Naturelles de Belgique, 70, 163–192. I can email you a pdf if you want it (please send me your email!). Jo Taylor

    Hello Joanne, I work in the Galapagos Islands on board the National Geographic/Lindblad Expeditions vessel (tourism) and operate an ROV and found what seems to be LOTS of Munida hispida on the sea floor at 294 feet off Bartholomew and guy Fawkes islands. I have been searching for recent literature to confirm their presence in the islands (I believe McCosker et al. in 1995 collected specimens. Would you know where I could find this publication or other? Cynthia M. Manning

    @rick mcneill: Not yet. It's on our list of things to do, but it's not trivial. We'll need to implement an ontology of geographical names and a way to mine available sources for geographical information.

    Hey curators! If you have ever wanted to find or count all the contributions you've made to EOL via Flickr or other sources it is now a lot easier. You can type a person's name into the search box and if the person is in the attributions for an object it will be in the search result.

    @Michael Wunderli: If you find a source that has information about these spiders, we can try to engage them as a content partner. They would have to be willing to release their content under a creative commons license, though. In this particular example, we could grab (i.e., copy & paste manually) the original description from BHL along with a few anatomical drawings for this species (could be uploaded through our Rapid Response LifeDesk). Unfortunately, there was no habitus drawing in the original description. For many of these species it may be difficult to get anything beyond the original description, and many may never have been illustrated fully.

    @Katja Schulz: What i meant was that for exaple here: http://eol.org/pages/1181577/details This species for example is present but has no pictures and no detail information. That was the case with most species I found on that website. Is there something we can do about that?

    @Jennifer Hammock: The obvious option here is for Flickr contributors not to add pics to the EOL Flickr Group until the photo has been identified to their satisfaction. Flickr has various ID groups where unidentified organisms can be posted for identification; pics of uncertain ID could be added to those, and then added to the EOL Group later once identified.

    @Jason Sharp: So, Jason, supposing we create a new Admin tool and EOL admin set you as a Tructed Flickr Contributor, so by default your photos came to the platform pre-Trusted. You wouldn't need to visit them all to flip them to Trusted, BUT, if you post a flickr image or two that you would like to share with us, but you're not sure of the ID, those would come to us Trusted, like the others. It might then in a sense "be your responsibility" to visit those images and curate them to Unreviewed. I imagine that for some people this would be a lot less curation work. On the other hand, maybe it's too complicated/confusing?
