Every so often, an observation shows the characters of a species very well, and when the species is in a difficult group of related and often confused species, it would be nice to be able to label the observation as a really good reference for future identifications.
See http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/227810 as an example.
I suggest that there should be some kind of button or similar that can be clicked to label the observation as reference quality.
Sorry to be elitist, but I think this button should be visible only to those who have an "expert" badge, and it should be used sparingly, only when the photographs are of top quality and do show the characters clearly, and the expert really is sure of the ID.
Concepts move on and today's correct identification may be tomorrow's misapplied name, but it will still be possible to add a comment in the future if that happens.
