Removing an erroneous common name

In the group that I work on (Orthoptera), someone has added a common name for a species that doesn’t really have one. They found a photo on a stock photo site labelled with a descriptive name (similar to “tropical grasshopper”) and added that as the common name with a link to the stock photo site. Now if I go in and try to change the name to no common name at all, I get an error message because the box for the name can’t be blank. Can someone tell me how to remove the name? Thanks!

You have to put a reason for why you are deleting it into the Note box.

You also have to delete the name, not the text. (Not sure from what you described exactly what you’re doing.)
