Question for you
Ken, is there a way to contact you off the guide to ask a question about moving the images?

 
My email address is in my profile...
...but why not just ask here?

 
Question
Okay here goes. I am wondering why, like OwlBob's photo, this one was not moved to a new page when one did not exist for it.

I wonder why you didn’t create a new page for this individual like you did for this one of OWLBOB's:

https://bugguide.net/node/view/1609712

Our two photos were handled a minute apart but here is what happened:

The title for mine had added “Dicyrtomina sp.5 – Dicyrtomina” while OWLBOB's had just “Ptenothrix.” Mine has sp.5 in the title but was left on the genus page while his has the genus in the title but was put on a new page.

We are just trying to figure out your reasoning.

Thanks!

 
We already had "no taxon" pages for...
...sp.1, 3 and 5 under Ptenothrix. The precedent had been set, so to speak--so I went ahead and created sp.6.

There were no preexisting "no taxon" pages under Dicyrtomina. I'll consider making a page for sp.5, but I'd want to look through the rest of genus level pics see if any other pages should be created at the same time. It's something I'll eventually get around to doing.

Please note, all of the images remain at the genus level, whether or not they have been placed on "no taxon" pages for as-yet-undescribed species.

Hope that makes sense.

 
Got it!
Makes sense, Ken. Thank you for all your hard work and your explanation.

Wendy
