but it still shows up in distribution maps because of that checkbox. Maybe it’s not the checkbox’s fault… I’m not sure. Jason?

The observation states it was seen at Portland, Oregon, USA. It says nothing about being collected there.

this observation should be modified to indicate that Portland, Oregon, USA is only where the specimen was observed, not collected. You can do this by clicking ‘Edit Observation’ at the top of the page and unchecking ‘Is Collection Location.’
