How to correct Turk's Cap (Malvaviscus arboreus) Incorrectly Identified

When I click the icon for Turk’s Cap, the second photo is not Turk’s cap. It is Malvaviscus penduliflorus, the first plant listed as plants commonly misidentified as Turk’s cap. How can I get to that observation and correct it?

Assuming you’re referring to the photo below, it’s not associated with any observation; it’s an import from Flickr.

When you encounter misIDed photos like this, rather than making a forum post you have two options:

  1. You can remove/add photos on the taxon page yourself. Just click ‘Curation’ and then ‘Edit Photos’, and then you can click the ‘X’ on that photo on the right hand screen.

  2. If you’re not confident doing this yourself, you can flag the taxon and add an explanation of the issue, and a curator will fix it for you


Thanks so much. I will remove it if it has not already been done.
