Coordinate Remarks: "Found two sets of coordinates for Dege from two different gazetteers. Plotted both sets of coordinates on available AGD 66 map. Neither set of coordinates fell on a village, but the map shows a ""Dega"" in reasonable proximity. Used coordinates from the more central of the three choices (from GNS download). Extent measured from the more central of the possibilities to the furthest away (Dega on map).#done GBIF"
