Hi KerriLee, You seem to know what you are talking about on the insect front - do you know you can add new species yourself if you have moderator status (which you must do since you have confirmed a few of your own records), and you can bypass moderator if you can ID things without help. That way all that goes out by way of emails is a single list of new sightings, rather than multiple emails with maybe an unknown record, then a suggestion, then a confirmation all for the same critter. If you are coming to the moderators meeting on the 15th we can get into all this housekeeping detail.

Thanks Jackie. Yes, we spoke with Steve yesterday, and he made the same suggestion. We've since been in touch with Libby and have joined the moderator team. I'll go back over the 'Unidentifieds' that I added the other day and confirm those that I'm confident about. See you at the meeting
