New taxon needed . How does it go?

Hi, today I added a new species of Glyphipterigidae. The taxon is Digitivalva granitella. How can this new taxon be added ? It was found several times in Luxembourg by various people adding it to the recorder of the MNHN Luxembourg, but none in i-Naturalist.

Hi @francisbirlenbach, if a species or other taxon is missing in the iNaturalist database, try typing the name into the identification field of an observation and choosing “Search External Name Providers.” You can also search for it from the main searchbar on any page, click the “Taxa” tab, then scroll to the bottom where it says “Not Seeing What You’re Looking For?” and click the search buttons in that section. This will try to import the name automatically from Catalog of Life and some other sources.

If that doesn’t work, it will need to be added manually by an iNat curator, and in those cases, feel free to flag a higher taxon for curation by going to the taxon page (e.g. for the genus), then clicking Curation>Flag for curation on the right side of the page.

This one was added through that first described auto-import process:


Thanks a lot. That worked fine.
