    @Tom Devitt: Looks like you've been working things out with Katja. As you've learned, EOL is not designed for direct curation of names and hierarchies, as we are a consumer not producer of those. We'll work closely with you and the providers however. That said (and for future record): For any given image you will want to associate the image with the most specific valid name appropriate for the image. You only need to choose from one classification, your preference. You don't need to associate with synonyms or higher taxonomic names (though this should not cause problems if you do) because our system *should* take care of those. If the image includes more than one organism, you should associate with a name for each organism. If the identification is uncertain, I usually recommend associating only with the taxon at which you are certain (so if it is unclear which species in the genus it is, just associate with the genus). But if it is clearly between two particular species and both pages (and science) would benefit from the tentative identification, then I suppose you could associate with both names.

    @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.

    Good job on the Magnificant Bryozoan, Dana! And a reminder to others on this list to consider tackling some of the other "Help needed" pages. Don't forget to remove when you are done.

    Check out the request for overview for Hydnora africana. It also occurs to me this would make a good species of the day and Facebook post.

    @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?
