How can I filter out observations that have only genus identified?

I would like to know if it is possible to filter out those observations which have only genus name identified. For example, there are some moths that are often not identified by species name due to various reasons, such as ambiguity between two or more species, the observer lacking the knowledge to identify the species but is sure of the genus, lack of sufficient taxonomic data in literature, etc.

In the iNaturalist search results, a genus is neatly sorted out by species and number of observations for each, but I feel those observations that only have genus identified get lost in the background. Is there any way to filter out these observations?

You can use the rank settings in the filters box, eg https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?hrank=genus&lrank=genus&place_id=any&subview=grid&taxon_id=143997

How do I mark this as the solution?
