Why not enter Hydra as an ID?

Why not enter Hydra as an ID? Yours would appear to be the first observation of these lovely animals on iSpot.

It was also called

It was also called Chlorohydra viridissima for a while, just to make sure you noticed it was green, but I think it is back to just Hydra now.

I have had green Hydra

I have had green Hydra suggested as an ID on two sites now, but I think some of the green seen on the photo may be an artefact of the photograph. They seem more greyish in real life. I will try to get a truer picture tomorrow in daylight.
