Apocheima pilosaria

No, Lord Muzzy was right, really. Both names are the same species, but iSpot is using Phigalia, so it makes sense to stick with that, in order to get uniformity and to allow pictures of the same to appear. If you click on the NBN map, you will see that it covers both names.

I've clicked to agree with his ID, which only seems fair, but hopefully Phigalia will return to the main ID...

I thought that would be the case, I didnt doubt Lord Muzzys use of Apocheima at all, just that the reference book I use makes no reference to it, thats all.

Cathal.
