In Accessory Reviews: Change the name of Remote Control WP to Remote Control O-RC1

I saw a recent thread on how to change the battery on the Remote Control O-RC1. I wondered if this was the waterproof remote control for the DSLRs. I looked in the Accessory Reviews database to answer this question, but could find nothing under the name O-RC1. However, the reviews for the Remote Control WP appear to refer to the O-RC1. Looking in, the photo of the O-RC1 seems to show the same model as the photo of the Remote Control WP in the Accessory Review database. If these reviews do in fact refer to the O-RC1, perhaps the name in the Accessory Reviews database should be changed from WP to O-RC1.

O-RC1 is the product code for the remote control WP. I've added it to the listing title.

I'm not sure what name it's marketed under these days. A photo of a recent retail box and/or user manual would be appreciated so we can confirm/deny that the product itself has been renamed.

On the Ricoh Imaging Canada website, the accessories tab for the K-1 and all of the recent cameras it is listed as "Waterproof Remote Control O-RC1 Model No. 39892" and depicted with a photo. Ricoh Imaging Americas website doesn't have a tab for accessories and the O-RC1 doesn't appear in the "Accessories" part of the product pages. However, searching the B&H website for "Pentax o-rc1" yields no results -- you have to include the terms "remote control" to get results. So, there seems to be inconsistency in how it's listed by retailers. On Amazon, the product photos include a view of the reverse side of the device on which is printed:
"Pentax O-RC1", and, in smaller font underneath that: "Remote Control Waterproof".
Ricoh-era packaging includes both of those names on the front of the box (photos with some ebay listings).
