          There are 2 species that appear to get mixed up at least in terms of checklist matching:

          Molla molla Evans, 1955, a butterfly
          http://www.gbif.org/species/1944817

          Mola mola Linnaeus, 1758, the sunfish
          http://www.gbif.org/species/5213725

          The taxa themselves are correct. But the images and descriptions of the sunfish are linked to the butterfly instead.
          This happens as the double letters are removed when matching binomials and the sunfish for some reason is marked as doubtful.

          Fixed in backbone february 2017, but still wrongly marked as extinct due to the palaeaodb source.
