Discovered on iSpot

We have species that were introduced to science on iSpot. Species new to science. Species that the world was unaware of before an iSpotter happed upon them and posted an observation on iSpot.

This project celebrates those species and the users who discovered them!

We can stretch the definition to include species collected before, but not recognized as different (i.e. misclassified as some other species or forgotten on some museum or herbarium shelf) until placed on iSpot.
But this is not a collection of known, but unnamed, species: they do not qualify.
We do however include species named after iSpotters because of their work on iSpot. Some of these may have been waiting in the wings for new names and been known as new previously: but they are honorarily included.

So:
This project is to celebrate the species and their spotters that were discovered on, or by, iSpot.

Please use the tag "Discovered on iSpot" - please note the case used: please select from the dropdown menu after typing "discov". The project is not confined to southern Africa.
