Just out of curiosity
Why did you delete the initial post and then repost this image? We confirmed your ID and moved it to the right place in the guide. All you had to do was click on Edit and then click on Male. Everything on BugGuide is editable and moveable so there shouldn't ever be a need to delete and repost. Enjoy!

Just a matter of timing
When you first moved the image out of ID Request, it didn't appear to be in Images when I first looked for it. I assumed that I would need to post it again. Just as I did that, the one that you moved showed up. Kind of like letters crossing in the mail. So I deleted one of them. Next time I will know to wait or maybe just refresh the page. Anyway, great site; very useful and fun. Thanks.
