Hello. Since you know the identity of your organism (from your use of a common name), please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. In this case for the "cottonmouth / water moccasin" it is Agkistrodon piscivorus. This allows the spotting to be correctly entered into the database and become a complete record, letting groups and individuals use the data and find your spotting. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. If you are interested in learning how species are named and why this is important, see Project Noah's blog entry http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/2870249... Thanks!
