This documentation is transcluded from Template:Expert identification/doc.

Whereas the identifications in actual use on Wikipedias are generally well reviewed, this does not equally apply to the images on commons as a whole. Many images of biological organisms on Commons have a doubtful identification.

Where possible, it is desirable to add a qualifier to images that have been checked.
