How do I get in contakt whith a curator to put a new species in the data base?

I am an iNATURALIST using the nickname “petzenbeer” and took and posted three pictures on June 25th, 2022 in the area “Naturrefugium Kaiserwald bei L 303, Graz-Umgebung, Österreich” from a water plant which I considered to be “Myriophyllum aquaticum”. Other iNaturalists though it might be the in this year newly described species “Myriophyllum rubricaule”. Valk. & Duist., Eur. J. Taxon. 828: 4 (2022). Van Valkenburg, J. L., Duistermaat, L. (H.), Boer, E., & Raaymakers, T. M. (2022). Myriophyllum rubricaule sp. nov., a M. aquaticum look-alike only known in cultivation. European Journal of Taxonomy, 828(1), 1-15. As this new species is not included in the inaturalist data base, I would like to get in contakt with a curator. But, -what a pity- the HELP was not helpful. due to the fact that it is in Engish only. Other languages as German would be nice. so, who can tell me how to reach a (the?) curator? thanks in advance! petzenbeer

Go to the taxon page: and click on the ‘Curation’ button in the top right corner. Then click ‘Flag for Curation’ and write a note asking the curator to include this new species

Add a flag on a parent taxon on the right side button on taxon page unless when you write the id and clicking for “check databases” shows nothing, also make sure species is actually not added snd there’s no synonym or typo.

You can write in German there. The curators will have that language included among them. Especially for a species in Austria.
