I agree with this your general comment here Peter although perhaps a
more appropriate adage is "Common things occur commonly".

A lack of true identification is not actually a problem so long as this
is noted! For instance sometimes it's better to report something even if
you're unsure. A lack of reporting can lead to some important omissions:
reporting assists with a number of scientific and research agendas (the
current debate on Regent Honeyeater is a good case example), not to
mentioned the benefit to twitchers.
