Plutof cloud (plutof.ut.ee) allow indefinite number of identifications for all types of taxon occurrences (specimens, observations, DNA sequences).
Global database for the fungal rDNA ITS sequences UNITE hosted by PlutoF. For example you may see different names (identifications) for the single specimens if you go to http://unite.ut.ee/taxon.php?id=158447 and click on some UDB id-s which are in bold. On Plutof workbench you will see much more but then you need to login.
PlutoF cloud hosts most of the Estonian museum specimen databases as well as observations.
