Is it possible to filter for observations identified by a specific person?

I’d like to be able to see all observations of a particular species that I have identified. I don’t see this option in the search dialog, is it possible to do this?

You can do this with URL parameters. There is no point-and-click interface for this that I know of.

Here are all observations that you have ID’d as European swallow-wort:
https://www.inaturalist.org/identifications?taxon_id=632667&user_id=plantarum

For this to work, you need the taxon_id of whatever taxon you’re looking for. If you look at the taxon page for v. rossicum, https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/632667-Vincetoxicum-rossicum, you find its taxon_ID in the URL. It’s 632667.

Generally, there’s a topic here on the forums that goes into more depth of how to use the URL parameters than I could explain: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/how-to-use-inaturalists-search-urls-wiki/63/92

Another option is ident_user_id, e.g. blueberry observations you’ve added an ID to:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?ident_user_id=plantarum&taxon_id=48353
