Moved

Confusing -
You identified this and it was moved. Now you moved one of the two images someplace else and left the other. Can you explain a little what is happening with the identification?

 
Didn't realize one image was still tagged
when I moved another image to Protorthodes alfkenii. Fixed now.

 
Obviously an accidental move.
