Notes From Nature Talk

Should we infer information, or only copy what's exactly there?

    An herbarium sheet I was just working on had no state given, but the location was Craig County (which google tells me is in Virginia). Should I infer this information and write that the country is USA and the state Virginia (even though it's not on the label) or should I leave blank anything that's not explicitly written on the label?
