See http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/31080 for an explanation of when an observation can/should be listed as Imageless.

Hold on. There are more purposes for creating a species list than to show pictures. You are right that having a picture is better. But I am creating a species list for out last club foray as a record. Not everything on the list has a photo. Sorry. But this one does. I just forgot to load it.

Remember, species lists do not have to have a photo!

By the way, here is a link to the list: http://mushroomobserver.org/species_list/show_species_list/432

Maybe MO should clear up this picture thing

The data is useful for building a mycoflora.

eBird does not require you to photograph every single bird you see (which would be impossible) to enter a checklist of species seen at the end of a day out.

However, in cases where sightings are exceptional, photographs may very well be necessary to establish identification. With birds it pretty much ends there, but with mushrooms we can usually ask for a specimen as well.

So if someone posts Boletus frostii from California, you can bet that I will right up there with you asking for a picture (and a specimen). But in cases where a common and readily identified species is posted from an area where it is known to occur regularly – a photo should by no means be required.

This will take a little data-vetting to work really well, but that’s a separate topic.
