Dear DeathShadeSally, sorry I wasn't more clear. Yes, you need to share the information about the source i.e. the website where you found the match/ID reference. Wikipedia works well enough as a starting point. inaturalist, certainly even Flikr...or image searches or personal blogs. I have sometimes posted the link to an image that was an exact match but no name!! Basically a suggestion is a clue...a step forward. Thank you for searching and suggesting the ID...PN is an easy site to navigate. You will soon get the hang of it. Wecome again.

SukanyaDatta thanks for the information. Google is where I found the answer and where I find most. I won't suggest something unless I'm certain thats what it is. Not sure where else I should be looking. Maybe inaturaalist like the suggestion below mine? Its just that Wikipedia is a horrible resource, and Google allows me to type in a basic description. Or do you mean to share the source(website) that I found through Google? I'm sorry I'm just a bit confused as I just started using project Noah 2 days ago. 🙂

DeathShadeSally, please provide a proper reference. Simply Goggle is not sufficient.

Hello Sheila 13, Welcome to Project Noah. This is a site to post wildlife (no pets or zoo photos, please) taken by you. In case you already know the name of the species you have photographed...go right ahead and fill in the boxes. The Suggestion box is for others to give you names in case you need help with identification. In case you agree with the suggestion, use the Edit option (under the photo on the screen) and input the information so that the spotting is complete. Each spotting gets its own page! Even if it is the same species taken on different days.
I really like your spotting. It is a moth and I am sure someone will give you the ID soon. Moths, butterflies, spiders, crabs and insects belong to Arthropoda so I am changing the category for you.
Enjoy the site..and I will see you around Good luck with more spottings!
