Leucoma salicisEdit

Hello Lymantria! Please, could you look at this image? I can't help myself, but I think it's not Leucoma salicis. The head is reddish, the spots on back are different, hairs too long... What do you think? --GeXeS (talk) 10:44, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but couldn't it be an early instar? Like here? I will look for more reliable info later. Lymantria (talk) 13:30, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Hmmm, actually... that really looks similar, yes. Might be it, after all, thank you. --GeXeS (talk) 14:07, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

These 2 Pixabay imagesEdit

Dear Admin Lymantria,

May I first wish you a Happy 2021. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year than 2020 was with so many people dead, unemployed or barely surviving on their limited incomes due to C-19. My University campus in Vancouver at UBC is closed and all the university libraries are also closed, so borrowing a book is impossible. Classrooms are all done online at present.

Secondly, these 2 pixabay images were taken before January 9, 2019 but were "published" on pixabay after this date.

Does that mean that Commons CANNOT keep them? I appreciate any reply which you can give here. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 23:08, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Dear Leodboudv, I wish you a Happy and Healthy 2021 as well!
The Pixaby images published after January 9, 2019 cannot be kept indeed.
Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 08:21, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Thank You for confirming this issue Lymantria. Have a good Sunday. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:24, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

2 IssuesEdit

Dear Lymantria,

Perhaps the first DR here should be closed as delete for the 2 reasons given. It is almost unusable and it is unused.

Secondly, is the image above an accidental flickrwash by the MTA of New York? You are an Admin and can best judge the case here. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:03, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

First DR I have closed. For MM I have started a DR, but very likely copyvio/flickrwash. Lymantria (talk) 07:01, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Thank You Lymantria. Stay safe and have a Good Saturday! Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:05, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
