key
An identification key, also known as a dichotomous key, is a method of deducing the name of a species. It usually works by offering two (in a truely dichotomous key, sometimes more) alternatives at each juncture, and the choice of one of those alternatives determines the next step. A very common error in using a dichotomous key is the assumption that the correct identification is even included in that key. It is possible that a specimen cannot be identified with a particular key, yet the key will lead the user to an end that appears to be "answer". For this reason, comparing the specimen with a more detailed description is vitally important: a dichotomous key alone cannot be used to identify specimens, unless the specimens are known in advance to be included within the key. See http://en.wikiped...se_of_Keys for further comments. See also the Weblinks Section Online keys".

I've repeatedly tried to upload a photo with my thread but nothing is showing. I can't see that I've done anything wrong. Can someone please assist?

I might add that this is a great resource and I am really thankful for all the members help.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
