    When I was last submitting records in 2018 I seem to remember that with each submission a map came up with all records shown and my record shown in red.  It was a great fun part of the process, especially if you had found a new site for a record.  Does this still exist?

    The map worked well when only one species record was submitted but when several species were on the form the map was just a cloud of dots. As you have seen we replaced it with details of when you last recorded that species and when the species was last recorded on NatureSpot altogether - which I find very interesting, even with no map!

    As a compromise, would it be possible for the species names on that confirmation page to be clickable links through to the species pages that have the distribution maps?

    Good idea, I'll add it to the development list. Unfortunately there is a cost to all work like this as we don't have the expertise in-house to do it.

    Does anyone else find the dates last recorded confusing? Why does it have the month first followed by the day in the American way? It's not obvious if something was recorded on say the 2nd of March or the 3rd of February and isn't consistent with how dates are written on the rest of the site.
