the subject says all.

I suspect that some data in GBIF Checklist Bank are derived from
checklits formatted in Dawrin Core, e.g. 
or http://data.canadensys.net/ipt/resource.do?r=coleoptera-ca-ak the source.
DwC data may contain nomenclaturalCode whichi is crucial to explore
name usages, especially the same literal is used under different
nomenclatural codes.  Please consider to add nomenclaturalCode element
(or something equivalent) to Species API response if it is available in the soure data.
