How To Create, Edit, and Delete Identifications

Documentation: Identifications Documentation

Add, Edit or Delete an identification for a catalog record. A catalog record can hold multiple identifications and will display any previous identifications as a part of the record’s determination history. Identifications can include valid and invalid nomenclature, as well as an evolving trail of identifications as an object or observation 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).
