Moth...maybe not a fish, therefore.

It's a small moth...one of the Pyrausta species, probably P. aurata, the Mint Moth. I doubt it can swim, though... ;)

reclassify

This entry is appearing as a fish. Please could you edit it and put it in invertebrates.

Switching

Switching to the last ID temporarily will give a new likely ID which will now (it wouldn't before) change the group to invertebrates

Not sure what you mean

but the new ID has not changed this from being a fish.

New Ispot treatment of Likely ID's

when Ispot finds a post has a new likely ID it now checks the post is in the right group & if not switches the group & then re-calculates the likely ID for the new group. hence for the bee(fish) at http://www.ispotnature.org/node/30193 just adding the 2nd ID effected the group switch from fish as My reputation in fish exceeded the other 3; & in http://www.ispotnature.org/node/416519 chrisbrooks by temporarily agreeing my ID made the switch from fish
The same method would work here, & in the case of the white moth, http://www.ispotnature.org/node/59907 I reckon Ophrys temporarily switching to the 2nd ID would do it.

Fish

I agreed with you on Udea lutealis, but it remains a fish. You need to persuade the other 6 people to swap as well, which probably won't happen. Easier if one of admin could just change it over.
