Change it

Just change it and at least it will be right.

Agrypnus murinus

The latest checklists seem to have it as Agrypnus murinus rather than murina, but I agree it is that species!

On the whole iSpot works best if you go with the suggested name from the "Get recommended" button - if you choose a name that is not on the list it will not link so well to other iSpot observations of the same species, and the observation may get overlooked. So even if you don't agree with name that iSpot comes up with (which is taken from the NBN species dictionary) it's best to use it if you possibly can!

I will do in future I just was not sure but I suppose book's do become out if date unlike iSpot,thanks for the assurance.

out-of-date

The NBN species dictionary that iSpot uses can also go out of date, so the name that is suggested when you click Get recommended can't be guaranteed to be in line with the latest thinking, but by using the NBN name we can encourage consistency in use on iSpot and help link to other similar observations.
