Latin names

Hi John, in answer to your question I'm not sure. I can find references to both Latin names. Conocephalus fuscus is the iSpot recommended name and it links to NBN records in that name also.

Edit - not sure this helps but see this link, where C. discolor is shown as a synonym - http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/scientific-resources/biodiversity...

Yes, it looks like fuscus is an older synonym so is the valid one.
