When I submit a detail of a fern in the database, I don't get the option of "sori" which are the spore capsules, in the : "what kind of image is this", so I have to use "seedpods" which is not really accurate.
The same counts for example for a photo of the leaves which are called "fronds" for ferns..

I think that would require quite a bit of work on Dave's part, since no particular plant group in the database has a unique set of options for their photos. BUT...it's always worth asking! Whatcha think of this @dave?

I didn't realize it would be a big job for Dave to add a couple of options..so maybe not then..
