    Determination

    Taxon: Carcharhinus limbatus
    Determiner: Agent object
    Staff Notes:
    None
    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.
    None
    Point is placed on gulf-side coast of Galveston, as opposed to bay-side, to reflect greater probability of obligate marine species presence.
    Replaced original georeference by moving point to coast of town. Species data reflects presence of obligate marine species, therefore, assuming to be found in water as opposed to city center.
