Redundant identification

"Don't use "Add a revision" to repeat an identification that has already been made (if you want to expand on an existing identification that is best done in the comments for the observation)."

These are the iSpot words from http://www.ispot.org.uk/help-etiquette

Those who are adding superfluous identifications, once again a spreading and annoying habit, should also read http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/213487

Note I did not "help" provide the ID, I GAVE the firm ID, and it applied ONLY to the lower two photographs. The observation title has been misleadingly changed. The upper two photographs are a different Peltigera (quite possibly P. horizontalis but, as I said before, the photo is too out of focus for a certain ID).
