Yura Arzanov!

How do you know about "that very time"? Lyosha Bok told you or?

Boris! So sign it like you told, anyway it can be easier just to mention female caught/location :) The rest is interesting but irrelevant indeed. By the way, I was in Dombay that very time!

24.04.2011 20:54, Evgeny Komarov This species is identified correctly.

In this very case it's rather hard to give standard label info. In short: Polyommatus eros boisduvalii. Female mother was caught in Volgograd by Gennady Kuznetsov. The egg came in Rostov-on-Don. The caterpillar was raised in Dombay (1600m above sea-level) on astragals picked at Mussa-Achitara (2700m). Pupaed in Dombay, but pupa raised in Rostov-on-Don.

Whatever! Let it be 0.75 then. But many wonder for sure the species shot location, or its expansion. Or one just doesn't want collectors to find that out? Can't see other reasons to hide this information, cause you even have some fields to fill in with this info when uploading photos.
As for location map, that's cool! But, as for me personally, when I find some interesting butterfly in web, I wonder first its shot/caught location. Not speaking of the fact, that in trouble cases this info helps to specify/correct the very identifying. Example: Hypparchia shots made in Crimea. Without shot location it could pass as Hipparchia semele, but that was H. pellucida. I'm talking now not about doubts in Boris identifying, but some special attitude to such information, especially if it's expert.

I may lack of the statistic of website users and their needs, but certainly 0.75 is more true. Anyway, you have a point that it's always better to have as much info as possible. Nevertheless, without location map it's not so handy yet...

Petr! I meant a collection item, in this case its value will be null for sure! There it 0.25, ok, some people just need to have a look at a species. But only 0.25 :)

As for null value, you overdid for sure ;--) In this website it can never have a null value, and it will be more reasonable to mention shot/caught location when it will be possible at last to mark location at a map (I'll working out it right now).

Boris! Why do you publish photos with no info about shot/caught location? The same as item without label in collection. Species seems to be rare, but with no label it has a null value.
