Is the copyright correct on your photo? The photo itself indicates that the copyright belongs to Daniele Ulrich.

Copyright ?
She is my spouse !

Oh boy...
I'd hate to find out that you're sleeping on the couch because you took her copyright :-)

Seriously, the very last field on the image submission page is for including the name of the copyright holder if the photo isn't yours. The post is still in your name but her copyright is recorded in BugGuide's database

Copyright !
I didn't know that. Next time I'll give her the credit. Thanks!

you're welcome
I hate to see marital discord between excellent insect photographers :-)
