How to suggest identification for a species not recognised by iNaturalist?

I have identified a millipede, which I believe is Zoosphaerium silens.

The issue? I cannot suggest an identification using the website. Zoosphaerium silens doesn’t seem to be recognised by iNaturalist. If I attempt to input the name it says: “search external name providers”, but when I click that nothing happens.

The species is accepted. However I’m not quite sure how to add the identification.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m very new to the website and have no idea what to do.

You can create a taxon flag on the genus to ask a curator to consider adding the species.


I’ve given it a shot thank you.

It’s happened to me before, just wait for that addition and then you’re the first which I think is a great accomplishment!
