I queried some latin names with Ispot admin and received back an email saying that I should use http://nbn.nhm.ac.uk/nhm/ from the National History Museum and the "Get Recommended Button".
The comment was - Within the iSpot context I would recommend that you use the "Get recommended" button whenever possible. This may not produce the absolute latest name, but it will enable the best chance of linking to other observations of the same species on ISpot (and on the NBN Gateway maps if you use those). -
However, they stated that the latest names are according to Stace on the BSBI website.
They also suggested posting a discussion on the forum - here it is!
I used the "Get Recommended" option and promptly had my latin name changed.
I would like to know what should be the policy on the latin name to use on ISpot so that I don't get the names corrected.
