Hello. The elk or wapiti has the scientific name Cervus canadensis. Please add the name elk to the common name, and Cervus canadensis to the space reserved for scientific name since you have already labeled your spotting as an elk in your description. This will then be automatically marked as "identified" in the Project Noah database. Thanks
