Hi Ruth, 
For now, that is how you access your past locations on eButterfly from the step 1 map. You can however go to My Locations (when logged in it is here:, and sort or search for a location and hit the plus sign on the right side and it will be at step 2 for adding a checklist. 

Just like in eBird, eButterfly is really designed for surveying. So adding development progress isn't really the intention and in fact in captivity could be slower or faster compared to natural conditions. For that specific use, it is probably best to document that in iNaturalist.

When entering a checklist location, is there a list of my locations that pop up when I check pinned locations such as in ebird?  Right now my 'pins' come up on a map and I have to zoom in to click on the one I want. 
Also I am raising a Monarch cat which I collected as an egg. If I want to enter its developmental progress, do I have to enter a new sighting each time? How to I tie the stages together?
