its several Oregon subspecies use hybrid-lexicon English+scientific names misplaced in the English lexicon.

The subspecies names are used as annotations in these common names, a practice that I thought was to be avoided, based on a recent Google Group discussion. "Oregon Junco [pinosus]" is some sort of notation for a subspecies but is not an English common name, so it shouldn't be in the English lexicon.

When the subspecies is not known but the subspecies group is known to be the Oregon Junco group, tagged photo imports are failing for me because of these names. "Oregon Junco" should appear only once, as the English common name for the species, until some time that subspecies groups would be supported. Photos tagged as "Oregon Junco" should import to the species.
