Coordinator notes: Glad to see that you are using mate location terminology I think more appropriate for butterflies (and probably other insects) - "raiting." If you get a rejection notice on the second submission it is because its from the same site, same day. Best to submit additional pictures of more than one seen on one sighting submission. If is was a different location then I verified it on through. Mike
