Am I right in saying this is the same animal, because both scientific names are in iSpot list.I thought there would only be one accepted scientific name on iSPot,if not everywhere? Maybe you could enlighten me.
It's an unfortunate fact of life that research constantly leads to names being changed. Yes, it's the same animal but Haplophilus is now a junior synonym to Stigmatogaster - it could change again in future......
The important thing is to get to a name, whether up-to-date or otherwise, and let the computers do the work of sorting them to the most up-to-date species name. Once you have a confirmed record, then it is easy for the scientific commnity to search (and remedy, if necessary) the appropriate name.
So, all I did was to give your specimen the most up-to-date name (hoping that it won't change in the future BUT......)
Thanks for that explanation Andy.I know that I have used out of date scientific names before (because I had not used Get Recommended),but I had never seen two accepted names on iSpot before.That's not to say that it does not happen.But now I get your junior synonym vibe!
Thanks again Peter
