Actually, there *is* such a term as "specie". And it is possible to
have only one of it, although the most common singular term for "specie"
is "bar of gold". (Which refers to a more-or-less brick-shaped chunk
of a certain metal.) "Specie" itself is grammatically a singular term,
regardless of the number of objects being referred to.

Precisely. You are to act as if you have specie instead of brains.
