Hi John,
Scratchpads seems to be the best solution for the needs that you describe.
I am setting up Myriatrix, a Scratchpads on Myriapoda and Onychophora, and
I am familiar with the basic training and tasks. I am also very satisfied
with the work of the Scratchpads team in London and the possibility of
interacting with them through GitHub.
I can help you to build up your site. It should be possible to import a
Hepialidae classification from the Catalogue of Life (at least the one from
2015), which will save you quite some work. I am sure that it will be easy
for you to learn the two main workflows: entering taxa and references.
Those workflows are well documented in both written and video tutorials.
Please, let me know if you would like me to assist you.
Kind regards,
