-- There MUST BE A SPACE before the genus, specific epithet, subspecific epithet (if present), and taxon uncertainty (if present).

-- NO PARENTHESES ALLOWED anywhere in the filename (ie, no "(" or ")")

-- If there is more than one image for a specimen, use a period and a number, with no spaces, after the EMEC12346 part. (ie, EMEC12346.2)

-- No zeroes allowed at the beginning of the catalogNumber (ie, NOT accepted: EMEC0012346)
