I understand you. Since autumn (on his return from the country) will start the job quietly, as time will fall free.

Svetlana, let's do this: enter information in the English language, but not necessarily in the box section The addition of information on the form . While there is no translation - the data will be much better than none, especially that on the basis of their already possible to formalize the signs. And how do the translation - and in general, all will be fine.I remind you that you must first enter the source of the section Literature (if it's not there yet) to specify it when entering data. If you do all this on the site have not done - first to post data to a pair of species, we moedartorami's look if everything is OK, then we can continue in the same spirit, and if something goes wrong - that explain that.

Wingspan started. More during the day to do anything I can not, alas.

19.07.2014 14:43, Vasiliy Feoktistov Corrected data.

Wingspan: No formalized data → 60—80 mm.

As a person, far from entomology, I can do the translation is wrong ... I would trust it to a specialist in order to avoid the inaccuracies :)

About this very need. Under the link "to add information on the form" in the appropriate box. But preferably not in the form of quotes in English and in your own words in Russian. While on the other hand, in an amicable way, then it will still be for the English version and the English translation. Let's discuss how best to do in such cases.
