[Monster Collection]Wrong Reindeer entry collected

Bug type: System Functionality, Text Confusion

Brief bug summary:
Killing Reindeer (lv. 118) monsters in Lion King's Castle until the monster is collected instead gives collection credit for the Mu Lung Reindeer (lv. 128) monster. Their names being identical, it appears whatever matching criteria is used to handle monster collection cannot resolve the conflict properly.

More details:
I have taken several screenshots at approximately the time of collection to prove this error. Collection occurred on a server where I have collected very few monsters, with neither Reindeer collected yet. I hunted Lion King Castle Reindeer until I received a collection message. I missed the yellow pop-up text, but my chatlog shows recent collection as I kill the monsters.

Here we see that the monster I was killing has not been collected properly.

However, the incorrect monster of the same name has been collected:

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start on a server where you have not collected either Reindeer monster.
2. Kill Reindeer monsters in the Lion King Castle area until you are notified of the monster being collected.
3. Open Monster Collection menu to the El Nath tab and look for the Reindeer monster. It will not be collected and will remain greyed out.
4. Switch to the Mu Lung tab and check that Reindeer. It will be collected despite never having touched this monster or even entering Mu Lung.

    The best solution to fix this is to change the names of all Reindeer based on Lion King's Castle, rather than Mu Lung. Something like "Snow Reindeer" or "Snowy Reindeer" would be appropriate given the area.

    Update: As of v 188, the Mu Lung version of Reindeer (as well as its lookalikes) were renamed to Cute Reindeer, so we can collect the Lion King's Castle version now.

    Cheers! I'll do some LKC grinding later to collect and confirm. I assume collection should work fine even if we had the (Cute) Reindeer collected before, now that the same-name logic error is gone.
