Hello Mr Alderman,

Be my guest and use the above photo as by your plan explained in your message.


Photo usage
I am a consulting forester from WV. I am doing a research project for a large ownership on how their forest management operations affect rare T&E species. Litobrancha recurvata is one of the species I am researching. I am needing a photo of this species to include in the report. The ownership will also be using the photo for identification purposes during their daily operations to better protect the species. Would it be okay to include your photo in the report?
