Combining/linking observations of the same organism?

I uploaded an observation of fungi, then later discovered someone had uploaded the exact same mushroom 2 days previously - is there a way to link these two observations in some way to indicate they were of the same thing?

You can use the field “associated observation” and insert the link to the other observation. You can also do this in the notes section.

welcome to the forum :)

Similar observation set is also the field used for such cases.

Great suggestions above. Just a quick note that you can do this (there are many good reasons to), but it isn’t required to note multiple observations of the same organism. iNat really documents human interactions with nature, so your interaction and the other observer’s are both unique and valuable.
