Avoid common names for now…

I’ve been wanting to add support for common names, but it’s rather challenging. For now please just use the latin names in the ‘What’ field. It’s currently interpreting ‘/ Coccora’ as the author for the species. If you want to give the latin name you cand do it either in the notes or in on the page for all observations for a given name. I’m going to go ahead and fix this one since it could lead to confusion in the future.

As a side note, I consider A. calyptroderma a better name to use than A. lanei since there is a good chance that A. lanei is a more recent synonym for A. calyptroderma. A. calyptroderma, on the other hand, is the oldest valid name for species (or group of species). See the discussion of A. calyptroderma for full details.
