I enjoy learning and teaching and I am more interested in figuring things out rather than being right.

A note about most insects I observe and subsequently identify: I often use iNat. AI to guess to family or genus and I know almost nothing about taxonomy. Mostly my guesses are thus just a shot in the dark; if you know better, and see my multitude of mistakes, just blast through and ID whatever you wish and send me a note telling me to be sure to eliminate my guesses. I happily eliminate my poor guesses and always appreciate your efforts to help.

Me gusta documentar la biodiversidad pero no sé mucho al nivel de especie. Mis identificaciones solo son para intentar ayudar y me equivoco muchas veces. Si creen que estoy equivocado no duden en decirme no hay problema asi aprendo :)

My maverick IDs: https://www.inaturalist.org/identifications?user_id=rudygelis&category=maverick

links and website useful for ID:

butterflies of the americas: https://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/Neotropical.htm

butterflies in the Amazon: http://www.learnaboutbutterflies.com/Amazon%20-%20Charis%20anius.htm

butterflies of cotacachi: https://www.cotacachi.eu/en/

best for line drawings of all orchids: https://orchid.unibas.ch/index.php/en/database-search/advanced-search?reset=1

orchidspecies.com great for pics, plus often synonymy and more

florula of nearby maquipucuna: https://maqui.ucdavis.edu/

orchids of maquipucuna: https://fieldguides.fieldmuseum.org/sites/default/files/rapid-color-guides-pdfs/166_Maquipucuna_orchids_1.pdf

vascular flora of ecuador, outdated but nice to see thousands of herbarium specimens' locality data: http://www.tropicos.org/ProjectAdvSearch.aspx?projectid=2

2-face book groups: REIVINDICANDO A LAS ARAÑAS (Vindicating SPIDERS)--one of my favorite groups; admins strictly control postings and fear and idiocy; Faceplant, mostly in Spanish, superb for botany; planet pleurothallid; epidendrum; American Orchid Society;

great website for ctenids: https://www.wandering-spiders.net/ancylometes/gallery/

A lot of, as yet, undescribed orchids. Here are some pleurothallids:
