  5. Whoa! You have now idea how happy I am that you joined, Colombia is one of my favorite wildlife destinations.

    Perhaps you've already seen it, but we have an interesting list of Moths from Colombia:

    Including a list which do not have the species identified yet:

    1. Thank you I will check those out. Posted 2 years ago
      1. How do I submit moths to the unidentified list? Posted 2 years ago
        1. Lists are personal, not shared. So it's up to the creator of the list to put photos on it or not. In this case, I'm the creator of the list, and you can ask me. I'll try to monitor your unidentified moths and add them to the list, so that you don't constantly have to ask me.

          If you think this is too impractical or want more control, feel free to create as many lists as you want. They are basically just pointers to photos. You can give it a try by using "Add to list" on any photo.
