I am slightly confused by the yellow stripe on the thorax. The eyes do not seem to conform to the norm either.

Enquiry

Good morning Roger, an enquiry out of curiosity really as to why you have entered a further ID when there is a correct one already. I'm assuming that it is because of your "I'm sure as I can be" confidence level.

My only comment is that if this was done routinely across iSpot it would create chaos among all users. Regards Chris.
