Robert, this species and two others in this genus have the browse images locked on the same 6 images, (instead of 8 random) even though we have several pages of example images.
Can you please unlock them or does this issue need to go through a forum request? For reference see Sphex pensylvanicus & Sphex habenus Thanks!

 
I don't know ...
I don't understand why these images don't randomly rotate in Browse, or in Info. Normally, you can hit refresh (F5), and all images will change in either. It may be a similar glitch why representative images don't always show when I create a new guide pages

 
Here's are more that I noticed (Jumping Spider & a Sweat Bee)
Pelegrina proterva is locked on the same 8 images of 2 spiders.
Agapostemon virescens has the same 6 images there too.
I don't think that this is a glitch. Another admin must have locked the image for those pages, maybe by accident. Please let me know what you find out. Thanks!

 
Done
I forgot that you can specify representative images for a guide page, because you can only see in edit made. I cleared these pages. See how they work now.

 
Awesome!
Hey, they work great now, but don't forget this species. Thanks!
