Hi Rod, why not add the ID yourself ?

ID

Hi Chris
I'm new to this, and still not quite sure of the correct modus operandi.
Someone previously wrote, 'When entering an ID, leave off the "family" or "species" part." I wasn't quite sure what was meant.

Hi Rod, If you believe your sighting be a Meadow Grasshopper (and you were correct) it's worth adding the ID yourself (not now but on future sightings). Just enter the common name and then press "get recommended" for the scientific name.

If you just know the family or there are numerous species within that family and you cannot commit then just add the family scientific name.

I think the previous thing you were told was not to enter "sp" or "family" after that scientific name. If you do it will effect the linking to other sightings on iSpot.

Hope that helps.

IDing

Many thanks, Chris. With the Meadow Grasshopper, I knew the scientific name but didn't realise that I should add it even if it turned out to be a different species. In future, I'll add it if I know it, along with the common name.
