Archbold's Newtonia !!!

Goodness knows where "Archbold's Newtonia" came but it appears to have emerged as the common name for "Lissotriton" on this Observation. http://www.ispotnature.org/node/374867

Tried it again and pressed "Get Recommended" but no name came up.

It is a bird, Newtonia

It is a bird, Newtonia archboldi. It will have matched with 'newt' in this wonderful new Global community to which we all seem to belong.

Newtonia

Perhaps because I clicked "UK and Ireland" is the reason it didn't come up for me when I entered an ID.

free-typed?

I am guessing that it was free-typed somehow because we don't have any name-strings in the UKSI database that would fit *Archbold* :)

It will have been posted

It will have been posted under the 'Global' setting, where it is presented when you type 'newt'. It is called 'progress', apparently.
