Observer species count does not match Project species count in single-observer project

Here’s my project: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/fossil-creek-moths

I’m the only observer. I show 605 species in the project, but only 588 species in my observer count.

Have I done something wrong or is there something I’m not considering properly?

Thanks!

588 is the species count and 605 is the leaf count, see https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/how_inaturalist_counts_taxa

Thank you! That does explain it quite well.
