I have some Solanum sps from Brazil that I don't get identified to species level.
In the area where I photographed them there are a total of 110 species!
From many of them I find very little or no documentation on the web.
My thought was, as they one day could get identified, to group the photos with details from pant parts together, so that for example if one of them gets a thumb up the sequence of the photos would not be changed.
But if that is not doable I could also put in the image's caption for example: Solanum sp. nr.1, Solanum sp. nr.2 etc...
Any thoughts on that?

Hi Myriam, I like your idea of labeling each unidentified plant with a number. By opening a separate plant ID thread using the same numbers each one should appear in the "Related threads from our forums" in the Solanum entry.

Ah good to know that, I had been wondering how that system worked..
