The rules of the name Imageless technically require that an image accompany this observation in order for it to stand as a legitimate record. The rules of the name Imageless are also, technically, completely made up, and are intended to handle a wide variety of situations in which observations that should/were meant to have images, don’t have images.

That makes this and Observation 154829 something of an experiment in how the MO community should go about tending to imageless observations of this type (if at all). The site does not explicitly require images to accompany any observation, but we wouldn’t have much of a website without them; just people on the internet telling (but not showing) other people what they think they saw.
