Each published treatment of a particular Florissant specimen is documented as a separate record for that specimen in the museum database. If a specimen has been dealt with in multiple publications (often under different taxonomic assignments), the database will include multiple records. Publication Status indicates the sequence in which a specimen was published. Original indicates that the record shows the first publication in which the specimen was cited. Most Recent indicates that the record shows the most recently published taxonomic assignment for the specimen. Intermediate indicates that the record shows a published treatment of the specimen between its original and most recent publications. A record is indicated as Original and Most Recent if the original published citation of the specimen also remains the most recent one. The taxonomic database on this web site sometimes provides even more recent updates to the names used in the museum search database, based on the modern taxonomic classification of extant members of the group.
