Most crayfish species make burrows, the mounds of which are largely similar among all species. In one area of the northeast in Michigan, it has been argued that the only possible species making them is Fallicambarus fodiens, the Digger Crayfish, and many burrow observations in that area have been identified to that species. Since then the computer vision has been trained on these and now throughout much of the united states it suggests that species for any observation of any burrow and most people seem to follow this suggestion. These for the most part have to be continually corrected to the family Cambaridae.
Is there any strategy moving forward that can somehow get computer vision to suggest identification to family rather than species? If we religiously mark that burrow family identifications as “no” in the following: , would that help? I haven’t been doing this.
