I was trying to fix my life list (and failing horribly for a while) when I noticed that I have less reptile species on my Life List than on my personal note book. After a bit of cross-refferencing, I noticed that this is due to the fact that Life Lists don’t count subspecies.
For example, I’ve observed these 3 turtles, all part of the same species, but with different subspecies:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/30875036 ( Trachemys scripta)
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/34109069 (Trachemys scripta ssp. elegans)
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/30874196 (Trachemys scripta ssp. scripta)
I wanted them to appear as different taxa on my life list. Is that possible?
