you want to argue with someone, do it with someone that’s into that. It ain’t me. Call it what you want to. Bye now.

Again, it is my understanding that in the absence of new names, old names are still valid. This may be of interest: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?ob=ArticleURL&udi=B6WFV-514P61W-1&user=2503449&coverDate=03%2F31%2F2011&rdoc=1&fmt=high&orig=gateway&_origin=gateway&sort=d&docanchor=&view=c&rerunOrigin=google&acct=C000057643&version=1&urlVersion=0&userid=2503449&md5=1b8449c536cb3ac1482362d9d20f874a&searchtype=a

Lacking DNA-extracting capability, I use the valid name that exists. If you can magically deduce the DNA sequence of the specimen from this photograph AND provide me with its name, I will gladly change it.

To call it a European name in my opinion. Have fun.
