    @Matthew A. Birk: Hi - welcome. I think that's a question for @Katja Schulz. I'm generally keen to get content (images, text etc) trusted, although I can't see any images on http://eol.org/collections/23073 at the moment. What would be useful is a way of filtering http://eol.org/collections/55422 by taxonomic group, to see if there are any cephalopod taxa flagged up for particular attention. I don't know of any way to do this, though. Maybe others do?

    Matthew A. Birk commented on "EOL Curators":

    I am a new curator here and am excited to serve by helping provide quality content to the public. Question: how much should I focus on improving higher level taxonomic groupings vs. specific species pages. I have read elsewhere that ToLWeb is focusing more on higher taxonomic groups and EOL will focus on species (http://tolweb.org/tree/home.pages/toleol.html). Is this an accurate approach for the majority of curators? I ask because I noticed that pages for higher level taxa in my taxon of expertise (cephalopods) is pretty lacking, but I want to focus effort on areas that will be most useful for EOL and the public.

    @Katja Schulz: OK thanks! I'll add an association to J. ashei.

    @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?

    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

    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.
