I was trying to flag my obs, no option? So I checked obs from other users (to see if that function had been removed) and there does not seem to be any way to flag my own observations. I was out in the field and I created this obs https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/150769782
but I could not find the species I wanted. I’m not familiar with the nomenclature so I was looking for the common name, Western Red Bat. And since I was out there birding and doing 20 other things I did not want to babysit my mobile device but quickly hopped on the web to find my previous obs of this species https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/146018028
and found they have been split and the common name has been removed. Not sure what’s going on but as soon as it’s squared away I will fix my observation from today.
Absolutely no idea on how to proceed. Sorry. (shrug)
Any user can add a common name, but iNaturalist asks people please to refrain from making up new common names. Please stick to names that have some acknowledged common use or an authority that many people can consult, like a field guide. Although in a case like this, the adjectives Southern and Western aren’t likely to cause problems.
