EOL Overview

For Gymnetron pascuorum>

It seems I have also fallen into the same trap that Ispot has on many occasion. The trap being the use of nomenclature which is not the general consensus. I have not checked, but I could bet a few quid that NBN will have this down as Gymnetron (Mecinus) pascuorum too. Surely the powers that be should get this anomaly sorted, for all it does is perpetuate the confusion amongst the non experts such as myself. I really would like to put a revised ID up BUT...???
