No Taxon Plant Images Requiring IDs To Assist In Arthropod Identification
Remarks
Many arthropods require their host plant to be identified in order to get a more specific identification of that arthropod. This section is intended for that purpose only. It is not intended to become a "PlantGuide" or "Plant ID Request", but should only be used as needed to further identify BugGuide's arthropods or to gain additional information about an arthropod's behavior or food plants.

Editors: remember to clear the "representative" flag so these images don't show up in Browse view on the Arthropod page.

Also: don't use "tag all" when moving these images (including to Frass)- they're usually linked with images elsewhere that should stay where they are.

It is intended that the final plant ID be placed on one of the arthropod's images and then the plant image be sent to Frass.
