ALOT of them are not mislabelled, just abbreviated.
Great Sand Sea 012, from the Egyptian DCA Great Sand Sea, that specimen simply never got classified as the official DCA skips from 009 to 019.
Tagounite 001 and 019 are just informally numbered specimens from the unofficial DCA of Tagounite.
Nwa 703 is simply a provisional specimen.
Kaigorod is simply another name for Vyatka
