Having the situation at hand of a species, in this case _Mallota
fuciformis_, photographed in a country where it was not recorded yet.
The identification is unmistakable.
Is this enough to report it as new to its fauna?
So far I have never accepted photographs as proof.
What are your ideas about this? Is a voucher specimen always necessary?
Is there a clear guideline for this?
