Holl/Hole
Is it ok to add the current spelling of Woods Hole to this and related records, and also that this is part of Falmouth?

 
wow! thanks!
I don't know why it didn't click with me that "Woods Holl" might be "Woods Hole".

I found and interesting note on the change in the location's name here.

I updated the spelling on all three images.

PS: at least two spp. have hollensis for their specific epithet:

Culicoides hollensis (Melander and Brues, 1903)
Placobdella hollensis (Whitman, 1892)
.

 
I learned something new as well
I thought you had made a typo before I googled it!
