I have now corrected the location on all your spottings using the information provided by your sister. You can copy these coordinates into the the location field in your next spotting from this location: Lat: 9.83, Long: 124.16 and this will then correct all future spottings.
Hi, we have noticed that all your spottings are showing on the map in the middle of the Sahara desert in Africa and you may not be able to correct it so here are some help notes for using the map service: All you have to do when you select location is either enter coordinates if you know them, or leave it blank and press enter. With the latter option you will be taken to either your last used location or to Lat 0 Lon 0 on the map, and you can then drag and drop the pin in the correct place manually in conjunction with the zoom buttons for greater accuracy. Alternatively, let us know the correct location of your photographs and we can correct it for you.
In addition can you please confirm if you are using a Vivo 1806 mobile phone camera.
I don't think there is any connection except the name kermes. This Kermes Oak is restricted to the western Mediterranean region of Europe. Kermes is simply a desriptive name for something red or crimson in colour.
I'm thinking about juvenile Ibis but not sure white, scarlet or other. When enlarged the bill appears more pink overall and slightly downcurved. the sunshine makes it look yellow at the base and around the eye but close up it is actually pale pink while the rest looks dark pink but not red. The other bird behind is paler, There is a third similar bird on the right but almost hidden. The two birds lower left are different.
Hi Williams family, thank you for your input on this Moth. I would be wary of your suggestion for this specific species due to the location it was seen in (Sikkim, India) being thousands of miles away from Borneo, Malaysia to which B. flavodiscalis is restricted to. Barsine is a huge family of very similar moths but specific species are mostly segregated into specific locations as per the following table: http://ftp.funet.fi/index/Tree_of_life/i...
There are many instances nowadays when specific species can only be positively identified by using DNA analysis which is not readily available to the masses. I would suggest looking closely at the distribution maps on the above site to determine the most likely species based on range.
Hopefully we can all learn a little from this.
