Transcription Notes:
solved remaining [[?]]; Morley was the author of a 1908 publication describing P. robusta -@meg_shuler @siobhanleachman - managed to solve one [[?]] I cannot quite tell if the mark next to each RCLP is a checkmark, an insertion mark or a "v". In volume 1 I'm pretty sure it's a checkmark to indicate the species listed have been checked either by himself or by RCLP (initials of a noted entomologist whose full name escapes me at the moment). I've been transcribing as [[checkmark]] as a previous project a while ago had a problem with merging with the Smithsonian system properly when we used the actual checkmark symbol. I've moved the checkmark to the end of the list of species as I believe it relates to all of them rather than just the particular specimen on that line. -@siobhanleachman
