How do I identify a custom field by its number only?

I am receiving the following message when trying to Create Issue;

Error creating issue: Unable to find field 'customfield_10313'

How do I determine which custom field this is?

Thanks in advance, Wayne

This widget could not be displayed.

The quick and dirty way (without database access, where you'd just "select * from customfield") is to go to your list of custom fields and press ctrl-u in the browser to read the source of the page. You'll find each custom field area is tagged with a string with it's id in it, so a simple text search for 10313 will get you the field.
