Changing a specimen identification

To change a specimen identification (or to identify a specimen that has no identification), head to Add a new Identification. The identification history of a specimen is listed under the "Identification History" tab of that specimen.

To change a higher-order classification of a specimen (for example, if a genus of bivalve is moved from family to another), you will need to edit the specimen node via the "Edit" tab. If you don't see an "Edit" tab, you can Create a new Ticket to let us know of the change you are suggesting. Once editing the specimen node, higher-order classification(s) can be assigned under the "Classifications" tab.
