I'm guessing since there is an entire field of them, this is not the named cultivar 'Sputnik'. Perhaps the species?

I guess I don't understand what you are saying. When I walked out into the pasture to see them up close and took my photos below, I came home and searched our database and the net for photos and found it to match our database entry and other Googled images showing this name. https://www.wallpapers13.com/r.... The bottom photo below, if you enlarge it, you can see it is indeed covering the entire fields in large swaths. Perhaps I'm wrong, but what is in my pastures sure LOOKS like the photos showing the 'Sputnik' strain in the name.

A named cultivar is a man made created cross or a discovered variation that is then given a name and propagated to resale through vendors. Since this is a plant in a wild habitat growing area, this would be considered a species.
You should never place any photo in a named cultivar based on guesses and online images, if you don't have the exact name from a vendor or nursery, it can always be placed in the generic entry, in this case, in the species of Rudbeckia hirta.

You had also placed the below in a named cultivar entry, even though you noted that it was a wild form so I moved it to the generic entry.

I always defer to your moving any of my photos wherever you think more appropriate. I see your logic here for moving these two.
