Yes, it should.

There are days I don't know what to with the images I have gotten either. 😃
Using the hashtagi #historicaltaxonomy lets researchers know this paper is any early work on classification and taxonomy
Since the text says Physalis pelagica, that is the Species name to enter. No need to do any research to find the modern name.
I would put "South-Eastern Anglesey" in as a keyword and leave Species blank.There are no inscriptions on this map (nothing handwritten)
Curious about why you would enter Species when there aren't living things depicted? I would have skipped that classification altogether
@geoffrey.belknap These two authors are citing Parkinson's work as they they work out #historicaltaxonomy?
@jules Here is another artist's mark to add to our image collection
I think this is a bill. New member of "the Society" requested copies of books, and is asked to pay for those
I did this image, as well. There are 3 different species of birds depicted.
These images by Parkinson are cited in two different articles. While this image is repeated, it's being used by two different authors!
Those are notes on the vellum overlay! The photo is a page or two after this image in BHL.
No need to hashtag these general indexes. We mark them "no illustration."
second letter on page describes #oldweather and the effect of wind on the darkness of night
#badscan bleed through
#historicaltaxonomy; first (?) description of new genus Cypraecassis
would be interesting to know what modern anatomists think these glands are
Fig 24- moths or wings of beetles? #historicaltaxonomy
text describes live young swimming out of the mouth of an Actiniae specimen
uncertain if Actiniae described is the same zoophyte as the Madrepora caryophillia coral or a different anemone
refraction and perfect rainbows
#badscan bleed through of text from other side of page makes it hard to read
For example, the creeping oak is historic; see http://www.wiltshirewalks.co.uk/tree_desc.html
I think we should use the terms found in the text when entering keywords or common names. Don't try to interpret or correct the text.
cross-hairs of the species ID box right on each named/identified species?
Yshish, you can mark this as one illustration, but name each species by putting the cross-hairs of the species ID
#dailyzoo Text describes the belief that geese arose from these barnacles (geese did not hatch out an egg)

continuation from previous page; #oldweather #auroraborealis #aurora (first time I've gotten both halves)
#historicaltaxonomy Illustrator is alluded to in last paragraph and may be named in vol V, p. 43 of this journal?
#badscan very bad bleed through from other side of page

Jules, check out http://talk.sciencegossip.org/#/boards/BSC0000005/discussions/DSC000002q (a great FAQ candidate)
I thought I read (buried in the discussion boards) that someone would consider this a table if it had headers and columns?
Forminifera is a phylum or class name (a taxonomic classification above the Genus species level);
Hyaline-shelled Forminifera is the overall illustration title; it looks like there 5 separate figures (8 through 12).
(a) Orbulina (b) universa (c) D'Orbigny is generically (a) Genus (b) species (c) person who first named this.
I don't consider this a table either; it's a list.
I don't think so. This appears to be a list of qualities that would define boulder-clay.
table continues on next page; #oldweather #auroraborealis #aurora
Confusing note on p. 389 re: roles of Strutt and Williams as artist and engraver.

no scientific names evident, which is amusingly incorrect. This is a list of genus species, and common names.
Also, the BHL page for this book (http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/12542992) claims there are no

Of interest to #oldweather?
