Taxon images in check lists

Hi
How do I change the image for a taxon in a place check list?
For example the image for Lobivia arachnacantha in the Florida,SC,BO is of a cultivated specimen in Mexico yet there are several observations, with images, of this species in the wild for that place.

Go here https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/869968-Lobivia-arachnacantha

and delete the cultivated image from the taxon.
It isn’t a Research Grade image.

Thanks. So the image in the checklist is just a random one selected from the taxon images?

Taxon images are often underwhelming. Where I can I tidy them up.

Many taxon icons were selected before there were any iNat observations of the taxon. Quite a few come from Flickr and other sources of reasonable-to-excellent-quality images with creative commons copyrights.

The selection of RG images is much wider now for most taxa.

OTOH, places with different subspecies must all use the same species-level icon. Since iNat has over 300,000 species, with more being added every day, customizing the checklist image for different places would impose a heavy burden on staff and infrastructure.
