Identify and needs_id search do not match

Good morning,

I would expect these two URLs to give me the same result but they don’t:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=140997&quality_grade=needs_id

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?place_id=140997

The first one provides what I think is the correct result for both (all the observations that needs id in the selected place). The second one that is generated from the identify page doesn’t.
Am I making a wrong assumption?
Thank you!

They seem to show the same results to me. Is is possible that you have ‘reviewed’ some observations, and so they are excluded by the Identify filters but are visible in the Observations view?

Ah thank you! If I click the “reviewed” option on the identify page then I get the right result. I did not actively review any observation but it seems that all observations uploaded by me are considered reviewed by me thus they do not appear by default on the identify page.
