Yes, I agree with this. I’m not sure how many people are aware that iNat observations can become research grade without a species id (by clicking that the id “it’s as good as it can be” in DQA).
Oh, that’s great. I do often do what @sedgequeen suggests. There are advantages to working through one species or genus but for me that’s a bit haphazard as there are lots of things I’ll forget about.
Suggestion for anyone else doing this: if you’re adding a species which doesn’t have any close relatives (or close relatives in the geographical area you’ll be looking at) then go a step or two up the taxonomic tree. e.g. in the UK add “Hedgehogs” rather than “European Hedgehog” (our only species) so you pick up misidentifications & genus level ids.
