Hi Bob,

Please see

An identifier for the source in which the specific taxon concept  
circumscription is defined or implied. See nameAccordingTo.

The reference to the source in which the specific taxon concept  
circumscription is defined or implied - traditionally signified by the  
Latin "sensu" or "sec." (from secundum, meaning "according to"). For  
taxa that result from identifications, a reference to the keys,  
monographs, experts and other sources should be given.

Is that what you are looking for?

I remember that there was quite a lot of discussion surrounding this  
term as DwC was reaching review.  It might be worth reviewing some of  
the conversations for background info, such as: http://lists.tdwg.org/pipermail/tdwg-content/2009-August/000082.html
