Correct Id

You are correct that this is a smooth newt. However the scientific name is now Lissotriton vulgaris. If you use the 'get recommended' button when you add an identification iSpot automatically adds the most up to date name. If you add a revised identification with this scientific name it will link up to more smooth newt observations.
