[www.mindat.org] and [www.mindat.org] are the same parent child photo pairs, just with the parent switched. Could one pair be deleted and the second moved to the Andradite gallery (as its the main identifiable mineral)

The parent/child relations are set properly for these two photos (137564 is the parent, 65 the child)

This is the only photo of bementite that we have for the locality (there are eight other photos of andradite)

Do we need two sets of photos (4 total photos) of 1 specimen that are the same though?

or to put it another way, why does the parent/child photo pair appear twice?

There are just 2 photos. 137564 and 137565. The locality gallery shows 1 photo, the mineral shows them both (bug), search is designed to show all the photos (parent and child)
