Retrieving leaderboard through API

Is there any way to retrieve Top identifier and top observer for a taxon through the API? At first glance, I don’t see it as part of the JSON for!/Taxa/get_taxa_id but perhaps it’s hiding under some other entity? Thanks.

Check out the observers and identifiers endpoints under Observations They’ll accept a taxon_id parameter as well as a bunch of others if you wanted to filter by quality grade, place, etc

there’s been some discussion about whether the identifiers endpoint under Observations properly returns the top identifiers for a particular taxon. (see Link to top identifiers of that taxon, not observations of that taxon - Feature Requests - iNaturalist Community Forum for one of the several discussions on this topic.)

the identifiers endpoint under Identifications provides an alternative list of identifiers that some might find preferable.
