Have you considered contributing instead to the Wikimedia sites:

* Wikipedia

* Wikidata

* Wikispecies (start at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Hepialidae )

* Wikimedia Commons (start at
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Hepialidae )

They only accept openly-licensed content, so you can't (for the main
part) upload other people's images,  but a lot of the groundwork is
done, there is no cost, you would be working collaboratively (and thus
receive a lot of support), and your work will live on there

I'm happy to talk you through getting started, if that's of interest.
