Taxonomic lists in collection projects

Hello everybody:

Can taxonomic lists be entered automatically or in batches (more than 4000 taxa) in the collection projects to filter the species?

Thank you,

can you elaborate more on your proposed use case? how are you determining your list of taxa?

Thanks. I am a colleague of Manuel. We have made a couple of collection projects; e.g., Florapyr Alpinas ( for plants occurring on top of mountains. In “Requisitos del proyecto” we have uploaded a list of 600 plants manually so far. In parallel, we have made a list of true alpine plants (about 1000) as a .csv file, but we do not know to link it to the collection project. The same applies to another project: Florapyr-Pirineos (, but in this case the full list is a .csv containing over 4000 plants. Would it be possible/recomendable to link an specific .csv list to each project? thanks!

Currently the only way to get a list of taxa into a collection project is by manually adding each one. There is a pending request to allow using a list as a filter, you can vote for it and/or add to the discussion here.

Thanks for your answers.

Okay, let’s hope that functionality will be available on the iNaturalist platform soon.

I’ll vote for it.
