I was again asked via PM why I spell the English sp. Piranha as pirana or piraña with the tilde over the ñ . It is my personal choice to spell it with or without because I have both Spanish and English on my keyboard and I generally write in English in forum boards and when corresponding with Brazil I use Spanish in some cases. I hate switching between the two.

For more on common names Read the fossil record and the usage of common names listed via this link.

Its more than that. The keys are different in Spanish (Columbia) since the semi-colon ; is used for the ñ . Pain in the butt to have to re-write something which I have had to do on re-editing on some of my posts because my key board is running the Spanish version when I forget to switch over.
