And no, I don't think I have any entomological anger issues! Hehe...

I saw a VW Beetle today that had a vanity license plate that made reference to "BUG." I wanted to ram it! ;-)

'alleviate' is the correct spelling. In my haste to post my comment and so not offend a Project Noah Ranger, I failed to follow through on my spell checking.

I provided a common name for the organism. It is not my fault that the common name uses terminology in an incorrect fashion. However, to alieviate your concerns, I have provided an alternative common name which accurately reflects this organisms appropriate taxonomy.

I do hope you're happy, Mr. Picky.
