If 8 people say it is Circaea why are you putting a "new" ID saying "it might be"? If you don't believe what you are told, why bother in the first place??

Whoa! I hope, out of respect, having been corrected in my identification and when many others agree with that identification, I am not arrogant enough to jump on others abilities and state tha 'I' am certain. Perhaps I am wrong in this and if so I apologise and will correct the situation.

Possibly a misunderstanding on how to use the system? What I believe you should do is either agree with an existing identification; post a new, but different identification (if you disagree and have a suggestion of your own); or do nothing (if you disagree or are unsure, and have no suggestion of your own). Duplicate IDs should be avoided where possible, but they do crop up when users are posting simultaneously.

Hope that helps,
