I think the two terms are different.

my understanding is that dcterms source expresses a relation between a
(usually digital) record and another record, that is derived from the

I think this is very useful in DwC in cases, where records are taken
directly from a publication.

However, it does not replace the fact that the source of the record is

cited in a recent publication.

I have doubts whether occurrenceDetail is a good label for the latter
concept, however.
