If these are two different individuals...
...then they should be unlinked. Linking is reserved for different views of the same specimen.

The two can be cross referenced by placing thumbnails in the Remarks section of each, if desired.


Good to know!
I deleted the other image as it was even worse quality than this one. Thanks for letting me know!

Isotomurus sp.
+ Sminthurides aquaticus females.

Thank you!
By the way, I significantly cropped the image and split the two individuals up. Probably more helpful for identification this way!
