I just found out about 4 days ago now. Discovering it, I was absolutely shocked that I’d never heard of it until the beginning of this week. I take a lot of photos whenever I’m out on walks or hikes, and I like to know what species I’m photographing. I know a good number of local plants quite well & have a decent mini-library to consult, but the other stuff usually requires some digging.
Last weekend I came home from a week of camping on the BC coast, so there were a few creatures that I wanted IDs for. In particular some isopods that I saw: one & two. I found what I suspect is the same (or a closely related) species here on BugGuide and noticed that someone asked, “Would you consider adding this to iNaturalist?” That was the first time I’d heard about it. Now I’m going back through some old photos and finding stuff to add as observations. But I’m still asking myself, “How did I not hear about iNat until now!?”
