Description

When adding new specimens to the character matrix the following algorithm should run:

  1. check if there is a specimen description that has the signature of the working set i.e. the same amount of features and the exact same features as stored in the feature tree of the working set
  2. if true, return this description
  3. if false, create new description
  4. clone existing description elements that share the same feature
  5. also use their source and store the value as free text as "Original Name" in the clones description element
  6. If there are more than one description elements with the same feature
    1. Clone description element if all elements have the same value
    2. if there are different values, show info to user and do not clone anything
