Topic: Agonum moestum issues

This one is hurting my head, but I believe there is an issue with Agonum moestum (Duftschmid, 1812): I think it's not a British species, but it has over 500 records on the NBN Atlas. I believe all records in Britain should be either:

Agonum moestum sensu auctt. non (Duftschmid, 1812) nec (Gmelin in Linnaeus, 1790) (=Agonum emarginatum (Gyllenhal, 1827))

or

Agonum moestum sensu Fowler & Donisthorpe, 1913 non (Duftschmid, 1812) (=Agonum viduum (Panzer, 1796))

It _looks_ like all data entered using the UKSI for Agonum moestum (Duftschmid, 1812) should refer to Agonum moestum sensu auctt. non (Duftschmid, 1812) nec (Gmelin in Linnaeus, 1790).
