Wrong default photo

I don’t know where to report a misidentification issue concerning the default photo of a taxon. I hope it is fine to post this message in the General section of the forum; other sections did not seem more appropriate anyway.
The taxon is a very common European bird, the Common Chiffchaff (https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/117016-Phylloscopus-collybita).
The default picture is the following: https://www.inaturalist.org/photos/3323168. This photo is not part of any iNaturalist observation, but was imported from Flickr. Unfortunately, it has been taken in Portugal and depicts an Iberian Chiffchaff (taxon 117027), which is no longer recognized as a subspecies of the Common Chiffchaff but as a distinct species… many other pics of Common Chiffchaff are available (e.g., among the most recent ones: inaturalist. org/photos/48751111)
Does anyone know who/where to ask to get this fixed? Thanks in advance!


Hello, Thommy,

You can also swap the photo yourself if you think it’s right. On the taxon page there is a button “curation”. There is a sub-item “Edit photos”. There you can choose a more suitable photo and replace the old one. The wording of the menu could be a bit different because my page is set to German.

Greetings Wolfgang

Thank you so much! I did not expect that would be this easy to do… maybe even too much so considering no public trace is left from such a change. Cheers, Tommy.
