It isn't just meteorites, though-- it is anything that can turn a profit on Ebay
but can be sold by someone who doesn't know what they are talking about.
Another sample that is close to my interests-- a search for "flexicalymene"
gives 10 trilobites that really are species in the genus Flexicalymene-- and 30
that are not. I'm sure that everyone else could come up with examples to misuse
(either intentionally or out of ignorance) from other areas of interest.
