List of Kingdoms

Is there a place where one can see a list of Kingdoms on iNat? I went to the “Taxa Info” page but didn’t find it there. The Taxonomy hierarchies don’t go above Kingdom (e.g. to Domain or Life)–so you can’t find them there. It seems like “Life” should be the highest “taxon” in the hierarchy so one could then see the Kingdoms listed below that.

the first thing that came to mind: https://api.inaturalist.org/v1/taxa?rank=kingdom.

animalia, plantae, fungi, chromista, protozoa, bacteria, viruses, archaea

From my own notes after fumbling around trying to exclude various kingdoms at various times, here are the taxon ids for them:

LIFE 48460
plant 47126, fungi 47170, animalia 1, protozoa 47686, chromista 48222, archaea 151817, bacteria 67333, viruses 131236

Notably, only the first 4 in that list are included in the “iconic taxa” so the rest come up when doing “unknown” type searches unless you exclude them.

chromista actually have their own iconic taxon in the system. interestingly, there’s not an icon for it in the Explore page filters, though you can input it directly in the URL. it is an icon in the old-style your observations page (the one where you can do batch editing).

Oh you’re right, and I think that one doesn’t come up in Unknowns after all either.
