Well, by ignorance i mean lack of knowledge that is satisfied by the curiosity. I like this site!

Thanks a lot.

Hola Balulo! There is no ignorance on Project Noah, at least not with the negative meaning of the word. I call it enthusiasm of knowledge ;-)... and a lot of curiosity, indeed!
Taeniopoda maxima is a synonym of Taeniopoda reticulata:

Hi Bayucca! Thanks for your suggestion.

How can you know the exact specific name, could it be the T. maxima, or another one?

I'm asking you for my own ignorance and curiosity! thank you very much ;)
