Sounds like a good idea. I cant see any disadvantages.

Proposed clean up of sp. and "(genus)" naming convention

Ideally we would use whatever convention is used by other platforms and databases. The addition of an extra checkbox creates additional work for users and moderators so I would suggest the application of "sp" be automatic for any ID to genus level. Ultimately I would use whatever convention increases compatibility with other platforms/datasets and reduces the workload for users of Nature Map and the data.

the only time I use the species option is when similar photos before have been id'd that way (because photo doesn't usually show the third eye or some important feature to get it any closer). I'm happy to leave it further back in the ID string if that helps save the glorious contributors of nature map time. And I probably don't fully understand anyway - but if it tidies up the back end and saves time somewhere I'm for it. :)
