Scientific name

Don't know where the Geranium holostea name has come from - not a synonym for G. lucidum, Shining Cranesbill.

and I hadn't even noticed ...

... but if he puts up a new ID as Geranium lucidum we can all move our agreements.

Thanks for the comment.
How do I put up the new ID? Just put it up as if it were a new observation? I do not know how this works.

To be honest I do not know where it came from.
My book clearly identifies Shining Crane's-bill as G. lucidum. I was posting a series of ob's. I think I tried to cross reference it, and in making notes mixed up greater stitchwort (or something) in my transcribing. Apologies to all. It is G. lucidum.

So thank you. I do not know the etiquette / procedures now. Do I edit it, or leave it be?

Add a revised identification

Just hit the "Add a revised identification" and enter the correct name which will appear under the original.

Thanks to all.
I'm not bothered about re-posting or re-identifying. I have found out what it is, which was what I wanted.
