I have a number of photos of plant species from the last few years that I haven’t been able to definitely identify. May I post them to try and get IDs?
Absolutely go ahead and post, there is no time limit of any sort. Hopefully you have a good reference (either from the photo file etc) of the location and date, but there is no limit at all.
Thank you - good to know!
Yes, I do file by location, because I do like to know where I saw them(!) and date is automatically on the photo.
I think there was even an observation of the week where the section about the observer mentioned they’d found and uploaded a picture from the 1960s
At this link you can see the oldest observations posted on iNaturalist.
My own will eventually be going back as far as 1980…
Just FYI, I’ve recently added an FAQ for this: https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/help#olderphotos
