Hello Daniel

Interesting data. If I had to model them, I guess I would define one
resource for each "Species", and one for each "Sighting".
For the species, I would reuse as far as possible existing URIs, such as
http://dbpedia.org/page/Desert_Froglet for Crinia deserticola.
But certainly Peter has more precise recommandations based on his work at
geospecies.
"Sighting" I would model as a subtype of "Event" as defined e.g., in the
Event Ontology at http://motools.sourceforge.net/event/event.html

Now, googling for "sighting ontology" retrieves this research paper
http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~eresearch/projects/ecoportalqld/papers/SemWildNET.pdf
which seems to address exactly your question ...
