Moved from ID Request.

You can also click on any icon in the Clickable Guide box that appears on the left of a page. Clicking the moth icon takes you to the moths main page and then click the Images tab. Works the same for all major groups and if you are completley unsure please feel free to post in ID Request. Either way, you photos will appear in the recent section and be seen.

Welcome to Bugguide. I suggest that, in the future, you submit your images to Moth or Beetle from the start to save unnecessary moves and to get expert attention. You may even submit them to family if you are sure of their ID to that level.

Hi Beatriz, Could you send
Hi Beatriz,

Could you send me directions or a link on how to do so. I don't see any option like that on the ID request page for uploading images.


You go to the moth page, for instance. Make sure that you are in "images", not "info" or something like that. At the top of the page you will see "add image". You proceed from there just as you do in "ID request".
Another useful thing to know: You can move your own images once they have been identified by tagging them. The tagged image shows at the upper left of the page; you go to the corresponding page and move the image there by clicking on "move tagged image". Also, you can edit your own images by adding sex info or adult/immature if somebody commented on that.
If these instructions are not clear, please ask again and I or anybody will give you more details.
