    Determiner: Agent object
    Staff Notes:
    Not flagged for specimen examination. By default we accept donor specimen determinations (after synonymization to our taxonomy). If georeferenced to TX this record has been considered in spatial context with other occurrences of this species and accepted as correct.
    Can\'t find Sinking Spring. This could be a mistype and should be \"Sink Springs\" which according to Brune\'s Springs of Texas is located on Sink Creek 5km northeast of San Marcos. I treated the location as \"San Marcos\".
