pages with butterfly/skipper images not assigned to species

Don't know who might like to help identify butterflies, but thought it would be useful to list the pages where there are unidentified butterflies and butterfly caterpillars, rather than have folks look all over trying to find images that need IDs.

Apodemia
Papilio
do we need this page
Nymphalidae
Danaus
Argynnini
Boloria
Speyeria
Heliconiini
Nymphalinae
Nymphalini
Polygonia
Vanessa
Junonia
Melitaeini
Phyciodes
Chlosyne
Euphydryas
Limenitis these are all immatures - is that because we can't place them to species? Should we make a page that acknowledges that?
Asterocampa
Satyrinae
Neonympha seems to be some question about helicta
Lethe
Lycaenidae
Lycaena
Polyommatinae
Celastrina
Euphilotes
Leptotes
Plebejus
Eumaeini
Callophrys
Calycopis
Strymon only one unplaced image
Satyrium

Coliadinae
Phoebis
Colias

We think that's it! l We'll remove any of these that get cleaned up from the list. Thanks

Adding the skipper pages

A coupe more pages were taken care of
so we removed those from the list.

I've started reviewing some Genus
Looks like I will need to learn about caterpillars. By the way what do I do with images of multiple species of the same Genus?
For example

 
Images with multiple species would have to
stay on the genus page. You might contact David Ferguson and ask. He has been our goto guy for butterflies. He may have some advice for you. He would also be helpful in deciding whether to make some No Taxon pages for images of closely related species that we can't separate as larvae, for example. Thanks, Cliff.
Also, it may not make sense to necessarily do the images in the order that we listed them. Some of the pages only have one unidentified image and can be quickly handled.

better as links?
ok, we can do that

Looks great
Wish I could help
