Is it possible to define case sensitive coded domain attribut values in one feature class in ArcGIS Desktop (10.2.2) for editing?

For example I have species 1 with possible habitats A, B, C and species 2 with the possible habitats A, D, E.

Or is this only possible if I use one feature class for each species?

Hi,

You can use single feature class with subtypes, add subtype field say Species_1 and Species_2  are the subtypes and suppose you have added two codded value domains Habitat_1 (with possible values A, B, C) and Habitat_2 (with possible values A, D, E) in Geodatabase domain list.

 Now apply  domain "Habitat_1" to subtype "species_1" and domain "Habitat_2" to subtype "Species_2" in Subtype tab of your feature class properties dialog box.

You may want to look into subtypes and how they interact.  Geodatabase domains are not dynamic in the way you're needing them.
