A Forced ID of Puccinia urticata is now accepted by the Species Dictionaries (NOT then, Get Recommended)
See http://www.ispotnature.org/node/417828

Doubtless this is what ipearce intended.
It seems possible that the UKSI Dictionary may not have been updated OR, just perhaps, the Drop-down was not used correctly - even in 2012 urticata was accepted, see http://www.ispotnature.org/node/274007.
Either way, Likely will remain with the current Currant Clustercup Rust for a long time yet!
