Add the "compare to visually similar" functionality to the "Suggest an identification" tab on observation

Continuing the discussion from Allow users to constrain Computer Vision suggestions to given taxa:

Yes, @bouteloua’s answer is very useful

It would be useful if this was incorporated as a button on the ‘Suggest an identification’ tab on the observation detail pages. Then more people would find it.

Can you share what you envision this would look like? I’m having a hard time picturing what you mean.

Well for instance when you let computer vision bring up a list of suggestions, or start typing a taxon name you get a list of suggestions with a ‘view’ button adjacent to each. We could have a ‘compare’ button there as well, or even replace ‘view’ with ‘compare’ and its functionality.

Is this really something people feel the need for frequently, people other than Tony? Since the stated goal of opening the Compare tool and choosing a specific taxon is already doable, this would be a feature for convenience, and frankly I don’t think I customize the Compare filters so much that this would save me any time. I mean I do it, and sometimes I change the taxon filter in Compare, but pretty infrequently.

if you click on View and then go to the Similar Species section, doesn’t that essentially accomplish what you’re looking for?

EDIT: nevermind. i obviously don’t understand this process flow.
