A search on 'Spean Bridge' using www.streetmap.co.uk returns the following:
OS X (Eastings) 222544
OS Y (Northings) 782038
Nearest Post Code PH34 4EU
Lat (WGS84) N56:53:44 (56.895630)
Long (WGS84) W4:54:54 (-4.915076)
LR NN225820
mX -547143
mY 7702993
The post code seems to match!

The OSGR at present is

The OSGR at present is NP921463, which is in the middle of the North Sea. I know where Spean Bridge is, and it is a long way from there. As databases use OSGR rather than postcode it is more important that the OSGR is correct, not the postcode.

I agree....

... but there are ways to guestimate a grid ref if necessary (Pedicia is not that rare!).

I was merely pointing out

I was merely pointing out that the record as it is just now is incorrect. If you were not aware of the discrepancy you would not see a need to guestimate anything. If you check the current map you will see that there is no dot for P. rivosa in NN28, and very few anywhere in the surrounding area. PH34 is quite a big target - https://maps.google.co.uk/?q=PH34.

PH34 is huge !

I'm familiar with all these problems. I wasn't trying to be dismissive. It can be frustrating trying to track down accurate record details.
