Question: calendar events duplicated

Bought a new iPhone yesterday and have spent many hours finally getting it setup the way I want it. One problem, it asked me if I wanted to merge calendars with iCloud to which I responded yes. Now I have duplicate events for all past and future entries... but only on the iPhone. When I look at my calendar in iCloud or on my iMac there are only single entries. And, if I attempt to delete one of the duplicates on the iPhone, BOTH entries are deleted. If I look at my calendar list there are no duplicate calendars. If I uncheck all of the calendars all events are removed, but if I recheck them all duplicates reappear.


Any ideas? I'm probably missing something simple, but it's annoying.
