I wholeheartedly endorse Christian Thompson's statement about knowing
who identified the specimen - and not some "authorityy level".  Indeed,
I have gone further and pointed out to some people that if they annotate
our specimens the benefits of their work are rapdily shared with others
because we post our data to GBIF on a regular basis.  Having said which,
I must check to see why the name of the person annotating the specimen
is not available on the records that I just checked.
