try to keep images on correct pages when more than one species are linked in a series. Tag individually rather than tag all.

This is one reason why different specimens should not be linked as same specimen as stated in the Dos and Don'ts page (2005):
"Don't link images of different specimens. Instead use the thumb markup."
