  • This ant illustrates a case where three different data source (NCBI, AntWeb, journal supplementary material) are needed to discover that, in fact, GenBank has sequences for this ant.
  • If you search NCBI for “Melissotarsus insularis” you find nothing. If you search AntWeb you find some specimens, one of which is CASENT0107663-D01. In the Phils Trans barcoding paper the supplementary material (also online in BoLD) shows that CASENT0107663-D01 has been sequenced, yielding a COI sequence with accession number DQ176312. If you go back to GenBank and look up the accession number you discover the taxon “ Melissotarsus sp. BLF m1”, which must be the same as Melissotarsus insularis. Hence, GenBank should actually say “yes, I have information on Melissotarsus insularis”. There is latent knowledge in these data sources that we miss if they remain in ignorance of each other.
