It used to be thought these

It used to be thought these were the young of Barnacle Geese in pre scientific times

the common goose barnacle

the common goose barnacle Lepas anatifera doesnt have striations, but the rarer (& similarly named) L.anserifera has (& L. pectinata)

Also in Lepas hilli the stalk

Also in Lepas hilli the stalk becomes pale or orange just below the 'head' (ie capitulum) whereas in L. anatifera it becomes dark/black. M.K. has mixed up anatifera & anserifera

Thanks for the vote of confidence

Thanks for the vote of confidence Graham but I was really hoping for agreement to Wildpad's ID, as it was his ID in the 1st place & he has 3 agreements already, so a switch or agreement there would be most welcome

Not certain

I am not absolutely certain of the value of adding agreements away from the original. I was told, months ago, that having split votes (agreements) usually invalidated the correct one.
Chris has triggered a change in Group, thank goodness, but Wildpads is still the 'lead' ID. I'd appreciate some wisdom here.
There is a case to try to shift Likely but neither Graham nor I can do that (I tried) So my agreement has triggered likely in the original.
I'd appreciate some more 'advice' here.

Just the job, Dejay, it's the easiest way. It's unfortunate that Switching/correcting group doesn't work with fishes (where you already have a Likely ID. Though I assume if the likely switches the group will. There's another barnacle needs switching at http://www.ispotnature.org/node/238597 (from fish barnacle to invertebrate barnacle)

I've been there.."I assume if the likely switches the group will..". I don't think so in fishy cases, for some reason.
It's your attention to a new ID, particularly when Other Organisms is the original Group. I see you are working your way through History - a good thing but I won't get flagged unless I've participated. 'Scuse me though if I stalk you for a while!
I have been using my Public Library for weeks as my BB connection crashed. What a blessing to be back to make a nuisance of myself!

Well I've found an example,

Well I've found an example, http://www.ispotnature.org/node/384304 green shore crab(fish).If you switch your agreements here we could see. You may be right dejay but it's worth a try (& if it did you could switch agreements back)
I've done it! ie turned buoy barnacle (fish) to invertebrate by switching likely ID at http://www.ispotnature.org/node/230776
(need help at http://www.ispotnature.org/node/257515)

I've been (and left notes). I hope things happen but I find that I am not powerful enough to swing many.
I think Mike Kendal has left the arena - a great pity.
I found this - you could swing it, no-one else will!
