names

I agree with you (although I didn't know the name for the melanic form was rebeli). Just to say that iSpot works best if you choose the scientific name from the drop-down list that appears when you type it in, and then add any info about forms and male/female etc. to the descriptive notes, rather than the name. That way the various links to NBN and other iSpot sightings will work best.
