Dataportal specimen table should be able to show DerivedUnits without a FieldUnit
The current implementation of the specimen table works only on FieldUnits. Each row represents a FieldUnit and if extended shows information about the sub derivatives.
We need to think about a way to also show DerivedUnits that do not have a FieldUnit. This case can happen for type specimens that were created without a FieldUnit and just associated with a taxon name via a SpecimenTypeDesignation.

How they are associated does not matter. But it usually happens, if the DerivedUnit is not atomized but has a protected titleCache and therefore does not need a field unit (field unit data is hidden in the cache). This may happen for types (in future it will not, once the new type modul is available which will include a cache for type data) or for ordinary Specimen/DerivedUnits.
