Microscopy needed to get to species.
Thanks for that Britney. Just one clarification you may have missed, but I think it may apply here, if you are sure it is Tarzetta species, you can put "Tarzetta sp." in the scientific name field and use the notes as an explanation of why it cannot be identified further, if you wish.If you complete the habitat field with any details you have of the habitat where you found it, this information may be of help to others. For example, some species ay only grow in certain types of soil or on certain plants. We do the same with birds where some have very specific feeding habits!
Thank you for taking the time to explain the system to me. I will edit these spottings to reflect that.
Hi Britney and welcome to Project Noah.We note that you have been making several species suggestions which is good, however, for a spotting to be correctly identified we need to have Genus + species. The Genus + species binomial is all that should go in the scientific name field as this is the prime field used for searches, we therefore ask that any other information be placed in the Notes section and not in the Scientific name field.We also note that some of your suggestions are only stating the Genus name along with the word species and do not contain any references. For a species suggestion to be valid it should contain Genus + species in the Scientific name field and must have a reference link provided to assist the user in validating the identification. Where the species is unable to be determined the abbreviation "sp." should be used. The reason for this is that those users with mobile Apps can auto accept as valid data anything written in the suggestion box and automatically update their spotting simply by ticking the "Accept" box. If you want to add any more information, or make an incomplete suggestion, please use the comment box instead.You can find more information in our FAQs http://www.projectnoah.org/faq and the following blog: http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/2870249...Thank you for your understanding.
