Simply a note in the ‘Notes’ section indicating whether host or parasite is the subject of the observation would suffice, but even then, that’s usually only done when there’s confusion about what the uploader wants IDed. If I were you, I’d just list both names in the notes but let H. lactifluorum be the observation’s “title.”

And welcome, by the way :)

This is by it’s nature a mixed collection

For the moment, dual name proposals are not possible. The present alternative is either deciding upon one of two or more spp. present in one’s photography to call the focus of a given ob, or making separate observations for each species pictured, indicating which is the focus in the observation notes. If a collection is believed to be unintentionally mixed, the name Mixed collection can be proposed.
