    Bob Corrigan commented on "Leptograpsus":

    There are a lot of questions in your post - let's start by acknowledging that we're aggregating something incorrectly, and we're going to take a look at it at a systems level. I'll ask Cyndy and/or Katja to give feedback on curation protocols, because we have facilities for adding and removing associations for photos.

    Could we safely refer to these as "Stick insects"?

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Euphorbia amygdaloides subsp. robbiae":

    @Lysbeth Hirsch: Does she have a good picture of it? It would be a nice addition to EOL. I'm also curious if there's a common name for this that we could put on the site. . .?

    Bob Corrigan commented on an older version of Range and Habitat in Illinois:

    @Katja Schulz: How about a curator-set flag that calls out whether an article is "global" or "regional" in scope? We could highlight the results of that flag in the header of the article. I agree with Katja, this is a presentation issue, not a data issue, so I'd like to come up with something that gets curators involved yet also takes the content as it was offered.

    By the way, your website is marvelous! Thank you for sharing it with us - perhaps we can find a way to share some of your other photos on EOL, with links back to your site.

    Thank you! In order to post it to EOL we will need to know what Creative Commons license you wish to assign to it. Then we can upload it, or you could upload it to the EOL group on Flickr. Let us know what you'd prefer.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Didelphis virginiana Kerr, 1792":

    @ZaraWoodrow: Hi Zara, I added that name to the taxon page in Spanish. If you go to the Names > Common Names tab, you'll see the other Spanish name we have.

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Puffinus auricularis":

    @Isabelle Phan: Fair enough, but often EOL users will craft a brief description and cite relevant resources rather than just leave links. That said, we're working on a new object type called "links" that would make it easier for you to provide those resources in a way that would make the collectable, curateable, rankable, etc.

    @Bart C.: Hi Bart, I fixed the exemplar and added a common name. Can you confirm the exemplar is the taxon? If yes I'll mark it as reviewed.

    @Howell Curtis: I can find out, Tom Orrell of ITIS has an office about 20 feet from mine (along with the rest of the ITIS team, for that matter).

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Calephelis mutica":

    @Howell Curtis: Sorry, Howell - MBL = "Marine Biological Laboratory", the location of the EOL Bioinformatics Group, our software development center. The issue was that we were not resolving the preferred name like we should have, but it's fixed now. ITIS is indeed our source.

    Howell, what are the distinguishing characteristics that led you to this diagnosis? Just curious.

    I really like the image of a "large, shaggy weasel". Good job BibAlex!

    Bob Corrigan commented on "Calephelis mutica":

    @Howell Curtis: By the way, Patrick at MBL resolved the problem with the preferred name for this taxon, so C. muticum it is.
