Say I’d like to know the list of families I’ve observed in order Insecta. There should be about 40, based on the taxonomic view of my Life List.
This search gives only the observations that are currently ID’d at the family level (not below), so there are 6 insect families represented there. Taking out the
lrank restriction gives every insect observation (which makes sense). I also can’t spot a way to do this within a collection project. What I can do is download the taxonomic CSV from one of my life lists and find the distinct families from there.
I’m pretty sure doing this automatically within iNat isn’t possible (for / now) but I’m hoping someone can confirm/correct that. Here’s how to do it when the level of the taxon list you want is Species-ish though.
