eol chiton glitch

There's an glitch with EOL, such that for anyone posting a chiton, (=shell with 8 plates), who doesn't know the species so just gives the common name, EOL gives search..for Leptochiton scabridus (rare,& recorded from Channel islands & "Western Channel"). Even with species name, adding chiton as common name gives same result (& leaving it out no EOL at all). As unintended consequence ,at is one ID'd as Lepton scabridus with 7 people (& the odd badge) agreeing it.The link does give a picture, & text, notably extreme low water & sublittoral. [& the chiton's Lepidochitona cinerea].
