ID number on the specimen & images pages needs revision
ID # given for specimens on the Images page appears to be an internal database number. Probably want accession number here. The date format is also unclear.
Yup, some errors exist here. We should report not the internal number but the collection accession number and the correct date. As per my other document, we should report not only the collection number, but also the museum the collect resides in (eg NCU, NCSC).

The problems seem to remain, particular with respect to images.
I will use examples based on Carya myristiciformis
1) With respect to the specimen tab: The ID number is correct, but should include the Museum id as well. For example, the ID for the 24th specimen reads , whereas is should read [NCU-555089]. This is important as we are starting to include specimens from other collections (now only NCSC) in the database, identified by the series variable.
2) With respect to the images tab: The ID shown is still a meaningless internal number. For example, the second image shows an ID of 23166, whereas it should show an ID of NCU-555089 so as to map to the proper specimen.
