Identifications Documentation

Edit or Add an identification to a specimen record. A specimen record can hold multiple identifications and will display any previous identifications as a part of the specimen’s determination history. Identifications can include valid and invalid nomenclature, as well as an evolving trail of identifications as a specimen is processed and/or examined by experts (e.g., an ant may only be identified to family when accessioned until further examination when it is identified down to species level).

Navigation: from the specimen record, click on the Identification Tab OR the “Edit” hypertext in the corner of the Identification detail
