COX2:

4513 - Homo sapiens
8923202 - Homo sapiens ssp. Denisova
6775079 - Homo sapiens neanderthalensis

Looks like you are looking at the same gene in different 'types' of humans:

Homo sapiens - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/?term=4513
Homo sapiens ssp. Denisova - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/?term=8923202
Homo sapiens neanderthalensis - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/?term=6775079

Therefore these get different gene IDs

Here, for COX2 the gene ID 4513 is from Homo Sapiens, 8923202 is from Homo sapiens ssp. Denisova and 6775079 is from Homo sapiens neanderthalensis (Neandertal) hence are not for exactly same organism.
