Taxon name doesn't match the picture[edit]

The fish pictured is Astonotus ocellatus, commonly known as the "oscar." It is NOT Hypselecara coryphaenoides. Needs to be corrected at the title level. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.92.44.72 (talk) 02:28, 3 October 2019‎

I'm afraid you're wrong. It's not the text on the page that is incorrect, it's the picture. Hence the text should have remained intact, and the picture changed to match the taxon. I've therefore reverted your edits, and changed the image in the Wikidata database. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 02:43, 3 October 2019 (UTC).
Update: Yesterday I requested the misnamed file "Baltimore Aquarium - hypselecara coryphaenoides - 4.jpg" at Wikimedia Commons to be renamed with the proper specific name. Authorised Commons' file movers have now taken care of that issue, and the file has been renamed "Baltimore Aquarium - Astronotus ocellatus.jpg" That's all good but of course it still shouldn't be used here, since it doesn't depict Hypselecara coryphaenoides. We have to stick with the 1860's illustration by Schomburgk, since right now that's the only H. coryphaenoides picture in the Commons database. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:52, 3 October 2019 (UTC).
