Can I Obtain a List of Places or Place IDs for a Particular Species?

I’ve been playing with place IDs to create custom links to help me identify Euphorbias. Is there a way to obtain a list of all places or place IDs the species is listed for in iNaturalist? Basically, I would want all places that show up as green or yellow on the iNaturalist map species page. Also, I know that the distribution maps are incomplete, but I can fill in the gaps in the distribution beforehand.

you can use the old API to get the data. for example, here are the places for Euphorbia graminea: https://www.inaturalist.org/places.json?taxon=162826&place=state,country,continent,county

this page can give you just native, endemic, and introduced in a more human-friendly format: https://jumear.github.io/stirfry/iNat_taxon_est_means.html?taxon_id=162826
