Quality Data from the South Australian Museum has not been verified or checked in a
systematic way. Data is often sourced from specimen labels, particularly for
old museum specimens and inaccuracy is often due to this fact.
Access Constraints Data supplied to OBIS by the South Australian Museum is freely accessible by
the public. The data supplied may not represent the total holdings of the
Museum as data about incompletely identified specimens, manuscript names and
specimens where a georeference cannot be calculated have normally been withheld
from publication.
