Indian Cicada Distributions ("Distributions" in the tab menu above) will be the most interactive and data-intensive module of Butterflies of India. It will be based on the same concept as BirdSpot developed by L. Shyamal, but implemented online. Once this module is ready, registered users will be able to upload their cicada spot records or trip/regional checklists in a standard format, which will be entered in a centralized database after peer-review of the submitted records. Information from the database can then be used by anyone to generate distributional maps for individual cicada species, or to generate checklists of specific localities based on queries input by the users. The module is currently being developed. Until then, you can contribute images to species pages, which go in a database and are mapped.
