Please share ideas how to fulfill/change this tree structure, categorizing photos of insects:

1 adult
2 larva
2.3 ....
3. egg
4. damage (on plants, ...)
5. pupa

forinstance I dont know where to fit spider nest, spider sack nest, instars, galls, .....
and forinstance "attached", 1 cm ,glued to apple tree leave with bottom side, it moves if you touch it (id of that ?) ...
BubikolRamios attached the following image:

The photo is a Lepidoptera larva (probably Coleophoridae) in its case, but I think what you need is a section called "miscellaneous" into which you can put everything that doesn't fit anywhere else (until someone identifies it for you!) Wink

hmm, I was convinced that ewerything that is larva in terms of lepidoptera is catterpilar. And the thing on image surely is not catterpilar.

Othervise the tree structure is for known things, I mean I can tell soomething is catterpilar even before I knov its id. If I dont know I leave it empty. See:
first dropdown: animals/wild/bugs/...
In search mode you can anytime pick higher level too.

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
