Oh God ... maybe.
Looking back, you introudced the idea of a (taxonConcept, location, time)
tuple. Syntactically, I think
(taxonConcept, location, time)
(Individual, location, time)
(vernacularName, location, time)
(Identification, location, time)
should all be considered valid representations of an occurrence.
Semantically, the Individual strikes me as being implied in each case.
