Notes From Nature Talk

Crossing out

  • kasiati by kasiati

    Shoul I take into account whatever was crossed out? And what if there were two collectors who described things differently?

    Take it that you can type in the bit that has replaced the crossed out bit. You may get collectors who describe things differently to those that later determine a new name (sometimes they change over the years). From reading posts, most people seem to be directed to transcribe the latest name. The scientists agree, although they say that even the original oldest name is valuable, so not to worry if you have put it in.
