Many Morpho sp. and ssp. not existing in the taxa list, what to do?

To the admins and all those concerned

Hello and a nice day to all. I have a strong interest in the Genus Morpho and would like to share my knowledge and help to identify whereever possible. But particularly concerning the genus Morpho i found that the possibilities to correctly identify are very limited due to a incomplete and partially incorrect taxa list. The results are that many identifications are completly wrong, but still have Research Grade.

Is there a way to change the situation?

Have a wonderful day

Here’s a couple of links that may be helpful:

This one explains how to get a new species added:

This one gives the steps required to be made a curator, if you have that interest:


Depending on the situation, this could be fixed with taxon changes. You’d have to be careful, though, and often it’s best just to add IDs anyway.

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, as others have noted, this is a situation which should be addressed on itself, likely by flagging the taxa you are interested in, and starting a conversation with curators by tagging them. As such, I’m closing the thread here.
