Latin name

If after you have entered the common name you click the get recommended button iSpot will automatically enter the scientific name. Adding the scientific name allows your observation to linked with others of the same species.

It would be a good idea to add a revised identification with the scientific name entered (Talpa europaea) before someone else does.

Nice to see a live example.

Thanks Steve

I couldn't remember the latin.. (obvious once reminded). I did try the 'get recommended' but it did not work (possibly because I used the wrong English name). iSpot mobile and android are a temperemental combinination at best. When it works, it works well, but still a bit slow and lots of 'force close' (especially when first navigating to location). At least it allows the author to pick up where it crashed, so its not all bad.

Yes.. first live one I've ever seen, unless there was still life in one being carried by a Buzzard earlier in the day.....
