Hi Trevor, somehow your sighting had GPS location in the Atlantic, somewhere off Nigeria and was messing up the "Map Search". I have moved it to Parliament House. Can you fix it to the correct location? CC @AaronClausen @JaneR

Thanks @michaelb - @trevor can I please get your help to narrow down this very occasional / ad hoc bug. Looks like this sighting was uploaded via the website, did you manually specify the location by clicking on the map or entering in coordinates, or did the system pick up a location from your photo? I can't see any GPS location information in the original image.

@michaelb @AaronClausen I have fixed location now. This moth was in my back yard and I manually entered the location. It's possible I inadvertantly clicked on the Atlantic Ocean, but not sure how that would have happened.

Thanks @Trevor - this is great for me to know. So you basically zoomed on the map to find and then click on your backyard location? And all seemed to work and be accepted by the system?

I haven't had the problem for a long time, but the Atlantic location is the intersection of the Greenwich meridian with the Equator: Longitude 0, Latitude 0.

@AaronClausen - that's correct. I zoomed in and clicked to edit the location. It seemed to work fine.
