This article in the New York Times today makes clear why fungi ID on iNaturalist is so difficult: https://www.nytimes.com/2024/06/11/science/mushroom-hunters-dna.html

@lothlin, you’ll be interested in this, if you haven’t already seen it.

Anoles are always so messy to identify :face_with_spiral_eyes:

Here’s a gift link to that New York Times article.

Is it OK to put that link in my pre/retirement signature block? I just realized it’s the perfect pointer to my colleagues in answer to, “What will you do?” Conversation risks stalling at my typical, “Plan to study slime molds!” response. ;)

Edit: Nevermind, as a NYT subscriber I think I can generate my own gift link for that purpose.

Looks like you generated your own, but using any gift link like that should be fine as well, for future reference.

I think it’s really interesting. I haven’t seen your note yet, but maybe we can compare ideas and observations.

Annotations just changed (unless I’m going crazy?)

Hah, I got sidetracked on a current annotation project, and so I still need to rack up way more CV assist id’s before ready. Maybe another August fun event lol?
