I would like to send a photo to your web sight
I can not find where I could send a photo of this moth I believe I have on my kitchen window.

 
posting image
Log in to your account. Go to the "ID Request" tab at top left. Click on the "Add image" link. You then have to fill out several of the fields and then click on Browse button to find the image on your computer hard disk. (Should work with a mobile browser as well.)
You can also post directly to the moths section by clicking on the moth icon on the left (or navigating the Guide) then switch to Images tab and then Add image.
You will get the hang of it after a little practice.

Iridescent Moths
What about a page of iridescent moths to help with ID?

 
Sure
Make an article with a bunch of thumbnails and I'll add the links to it. Go through the guide and gather up all of the species you can find and add one of each to a page, it should look like this when you are done.

Nice idea...
...to compile all these articles, John! I'm sure it will prove handy for many. Personally, I'm going to be able to replace the several other bookmarks I had created with links to these pages with just this one now.

 
Also
there is always a link to this from the Moth info page.

Idenification -->Identification
Neat article. The spelling in the title needs to be fixed, however.

 
Thanks
done
