Implications and caveats

Severity: Warning

When a dataset is supplied to the ALA there is the option to supply taxonomic hints or cues for the dataset. For example, the dataset from Bird Life Australia might be expected to only contain occurrences from Kingdom Animalia and possibly only the Class Aves.

This issue is raised if taxonomic hints have been supplied for the datset and the matched name doesn't fall within the specified taxa.

Possible error in name matching but may just be an incidental sighting outside the usual area of interest
