Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Psychodidae: Clogmia or Lepiseodina latipennis

OK. On iNaturalist, there should be only one node for each of these species. I thought they were under Clogmia for European species. Perhaps they need to be flagged for a taxon swap.
One issue I see especially with sites like iNat that cater to the general public is that characters depending on dissection or viewing fine details do not help. It would be good if gross characters could be used primarily, if possible to separate a species. I believe this is possible with many species that are nevertheless separated "officially" by details such as genetalia. Of course, sometimes that cannot be avoided.
