Hello. The white-tailed deer's scientific name is Odocoileus virginianus. Why not complete your spotting's naming by putting that into the Scientific name space? That way the PN database of spottings will mark yours as identified. Thanks.
Hello. Since you know the identity of your organism (from your use of its common name), please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. In this case for the "white-tailed deer" it is Odocoileus virginianus. This allows the spotting to be correctly labeled within the database and become a complete record, letting groups and individuals use the data and find your spotting. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. If you are interested in learning how species are named and why this is important, see Project Noah's blog entry http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/2870249... Thanks!
