NOTE: When specimens are annotated by experts, we update our database to reflect the new determinations. If however, a digital image of a specimen was taken before the new determination was made, we do not rephotograph the specimen. As a result, users may occasionally encounter a discrepancy between the name that appears in the database (for a particular specimen) and the name that is recorded directly on the specimen image. If you discover such a discrepancy, please note that the name in the database is the name that is currently recognized at FTG, while the photograph can be considered a record of the prior annotation history of the specimen.
