hi Max
thanks for sending me the link.
I couldn't find your record of African boxthorn because it is misplaced in Watson (see the headline with the Common Name) rather than Mt Majura AND misplaced on a new page.
For an unknown reason, your African Boxthorn AB record has been placed on a new AB page at
https://canberra.naturemapr.org/species/7964
rather than the AB page where I was searching at
Lycium ferocissimum

Tapirlord
is there a reason for 2 African Boxthorn pages?

Perhaps Moderator notifications should be linked to Maps rather than Places.
I think Places are named by Google and Maps are defined by CNM.

thank you for your comment Mike - I don't understand how it works just can comment on the result (many records taken in the mt majura nature reserve are placed into Downer, Watson, Hackett etc).
Any idea why Max' record of an African Boxthorn has been placed on a new page?

Ah, so there must be a duplicate name here. Thanks, Waltraud for finding it, I can reconfirm this sighting under the correct name but this is a good opportunity to merge the two names.
@michaelb there seems to be two african boxthorns :).

The sighting should have been added to the Species page 7963, not shown as a new page 7964.

I can't seem to access page 1764 through the field guide either, only through the drop down and link to the sighting, very unusual.
