The title is self-explanatory. EOL has updated to a new version, and ever since it did, iNaturalist has been unable to correctly source or even find its photos for the taxon pages. An example can be found here, among countless others.

This is a big problem because iNaturalist relied on the EOL for photographs of many taxa that lacked material on Flickr or Wikimedia. Most of these taxa are obscure and do not have accessible photos anywhere else. Any idea as to why this is happening and how it cam be fixed?

Considering the changes going on with Flickr, I think this is all the more important for us to retain EOL as a valuable photo-resource when observations on iNaturalist have yet to be made for obscure taxa.
