Can taxa be excluded from a search?

Is there a way to exclude certain taxa from a search. For example, I regularly identify Hydrozoa, but probably 75% of the posted observations are Physalia, Velella, or Porpita (the common pelagic groups that wash ashore). I’d love to be able to exclude them from my searches, so that I can focus my attention on the groups I’m actually interested in.

Yes, definitely. See the URL guide here


thanks, that was very helpful. it’s a shame the interface doesn’t have a more user-friendly way of implementing these kinds of searches. I’d love to be able to store these as “subscriptions”. instead, I just bookmarked the searches that I created.
