Found the bulbmoss and sail flyer, now only the spade burrower is left. Wish me luck with that.

I think I found the last one (analysis is still pending)
See if you can spot it (you probably can, I did, after all. By the way, the picture is classified, by the way, just a heads-up)

But what to do now.....?

Hey everyone, There is a 7th motobiont and it is listed as unspecified.

I still going around the island but have found all the motobionts and 32 of the 34 photobionts listed.  However we are told there is an unidentified motobiont so seems we should add this.  Also, and I'm just being impatient, but I just sent in images for three photobionts and awaiting analysis.  They are all very distinctive and if they come back as separate species then that will be one more.  Also where I took the three photobiont photo,  there are two, maybe three others that I don't recognize from posted pictures of existing species.  I printed off a list with photos of all the species that I've seen so far so that's my checklist.  So I have three pending and three still to come that don't match images of the 34 photobionts that I have to date.  So there might be more than 34.  I will update.

My last post was premature.  As we all know now, that last species rich image is the main end of this stage of the game.  Susteren will not ID any of the three images sent saying she has too little information.  Too bad as there are a number of new species in that image.  So ignoring those I have all the motobionts listed above and 32 of the 34 photobionts.  So I was just moving around trying to find the two species I needed plus maybe complete some badges but there are apparently a number of those and I only have a few.   So after a short I am not logging on as much and then went 4-5 days not logging in.  Susteren comes back and says there are still species to see.  She says "Unviewed Species:  6".   So it looks like the 34 above is also missing 4 species but we don't know if they are motobionts or photobionts.  So with 6 species to find then I'll keep looking unless it continues to be futile.

Well after searching the island for multiple more trips, I realize that I am not going to find any thing extra.  I am still missing the SAIL IRIS if anyone can give me a clue as to where you've seen it.

As I mentioned before Susteren's email told me that I had 6 unviewed species but based on the list in this message thread which also coincides with the species list on the Wiki site - I was only missing two, of which I found one (Collared Boa).  So I think when I find the Sand Iris I will have them all and Susteren's email was incorrect.  Once I find the Sand Iris, I would love to drive around and complete badges but that's so random and I have no idea what I need to do that I'll stop visiting.  Hopefully after x days of inactivity Susteren will return to tell me that I still have x number of species unviewed.

I have added some money to the campaign for the next level so hope that will help move it forward.

So thanks in advance to anyone who can help me find the SAIL IRIS.

Hey Kevin, big apologies for not noticing this before, but I believe you're misinterpreting Jane's email.  She's just saying there's six species on your "Discoveries" page that you haven't clicked on and read the description of.  I can see how that would be confusing.

Sail Iris tend to be found in the same areas as Scaled Ancients, if that helps at all. ;)  Thanks for the Kickstarter pledge!
