Examples

if (FALSE) {
occ_get(key=855998194)

# many occurrences
occ_get(key=c(101010, 240713150, 855998194))

# Verbatim data
occ_get_verbatim(key=855998194)
occ_get_verbatim(key=855998194, fields='all')
occ_get_verbatim(key=855998194,
 fields=c('scientificName', 'lastCrawled', 'county'))
occ_get_verbatim(key=c(855998194, 620594291))
occ_get_verbatim(key=c(855998194, 620594291), fields='all')
occ_get_verbatim(key=c(855998194, 620594291),
   fields=c('scientificName', 'decimalLatitude', 'basisOfRecord'))

# curl options, pass in a named list
occ_get(key=855998194, curlopts = list(verbose=TRUE))
