    • Hi, @rleder – are these two specimens? Are they housed within your personal collection? Talk to you soon, Jen

      • Hi Jennifer,

        no this is actually one specimen but the images are quite bad. That is something that we uploaded as a test as part of our first PaleoBlitz or digitization workshop in 2016. It is in my personal collection but maybe not worth to remain in the myFossil collection, qualitywise and informationwise. You can not really get any good information of that image.
        While I was checking the specimens I contributed to the myFossil database I saw that some of them have no content. Were they deleted?



        • Hi, Ronny – I think this specimen is fine to remain on the website. It can still be useful to others interested in the taxon or region.

          The blank specimens are likely a result of draft specimens from the previous upload process. We recently migrated all of the data to a more uniform and up to museum standards database. This new system does not allow draft specimens like the other one did. So any specimens that were incomplete or accidentally created are shown as blank in this system as there is no ‘draft’ folder. Unless you are specifically remembering additional specimens you are not seeing that is likely why there are ’empty’ specimens.

          Talk to you soon,
