Previous / Next buttons

Am I alone in being confused by these? The Previous button takes me to the next observation added to iSpot (ie the one added immediately after the one I'm looking at) while the Next button takes me to the item added immediately before (ie immediately previous to) the one I'm looking at.

The button on the left (Previous) does take me to the left on the carousel which is helpful ... but adding items to the left hand end of a line, as happens on the carousel, is a little unusual in itself.

I wonder if "Earlier" and "Later" would ease the confusion for users (me anyway!) and possibly also for developers?
