Tracking CV's addition of species in a speciose genus

I know that I can look in the About tab of a taxon to see if it is included in iNaturalist’s Computer Vision. But is there a way to see how many species in a genus are in the CV and get a list of them? This would be useful information for a very speciose genus like Sphagnum or Carex.

You can do it with the API, but not in the web interface.

Thanks. I don’t speak API though. Anyone who can show me how to do that, I’d appreciate it.

it’s possible to do with the API, but it’s a bit inefficient / ugly because of the way /v1/taxa and /v1/taxa/{id} behave. why do you need this information?

It would be useful information for focusing ID efforts on species that still need to get over the threshold for CV inclusion and checking similar species for misidentifications based on CV suggestions.

i suspect that knowing whether a taxon is in the model or not, by itself, is not actually that helpful. a taxon that’s not in the model with 0 observations is probably less interesting to you than a taxon that’s not in the model with 95 observations (since 100 photos is the cutoff for training), right? really, the observation count is more informative than whether something is in the model or not, right?

here’s are the counts of observations with photos for Carex species: https://jumear.github.io/stirfry/iNatAPIv1_observations_species_counts?taxon_id=48571&photos=true

is the above really less informative than having observation counts (with and without photos) and also knowing whether something is in the model? (below are the top 500 species by observation count just as an example.)

100 photos is about 60 obs. That is my target.
For example Carex austrina needs another 20 obs (from various observers - model needs a variety of cameras, photographers, photo quality, and views of taxon) Not - I will whizz out and make 20 new obs myself. But maybe you can retrieve some from broader taxa or Unknowns?

Actually that list is pretty useful, for Sphagnum. My reason for wanting to know is this: at first, the CV was suggesting Sphagnum squarrosum for nearly every Sphagnum. I generated your list for Sphagnum to see species counts for that genus. I see there are over 3600 observations called Sphagnum squarrosum, but the vast majority of these are wrong because of that early suggestion. I skipped down the list and estimated that the CV is now suggesting around 40 species of Sphagnum. Many are still wrong, but what an improvement! I can attack those bogus Sphagnum squarrosum now with some hope that we can get somewhere on them. Thanks, @pisum.

Exactly.

This is great, thanks @pisum! Can the number of photos be output in addition to the number of observations?

You can use 70 obs as a cutoff if you want a conservative number.

Very interesting, thanks! Looking at the outliers, neither number of observations nor number of photos per se seem to be the determining factor for inclusion in the CV. It probably has to be obs/photos with a community ID? Here’s the upper and lower ends of what is included or not:

  • Carex lanceolata - 235 obs, not included
  • Carex pisiformis - 202 obs, not included
  • Carex festucacea - 177 obs, not included
    vs.
  • Carex elliottii - 76 obs, included
  • Carex hochstetteriana - 67 obs, included
  • Carex peregrina - 66 obs, included

i checked, and it looks like the cutoff is actually 100 observations (with photos, i assume), including 50 research grade.

so if that’s correct, you could tell if a taxon will be included in the next training run by looking at the combination of the two sets:

you could probably use the experimental compare tool to combine those two sets in most cases, like so:

the 50 research grade limit explains the ones not included.

the other situations might be due to any number of things. there is a known bug that seems to affect some taxa. but maybe there have just been a lot of changes to those taxa since the model was last changed?

looking at C. elliottii, it seems like if you include withdrawn ids, there could have been close to 100 observations, and maybe someone just did a lot of cleanup on that taxon since the last CV training?

C. hochstetteriana and C.peregrina have fewer observations, even if you include withdrawn. however, they are both limited to the Azores. so maybe an observer disappeared? or was there some sort of weird taxon change? someone can do more research here if they like, but i’m not super interested in digging much deeper here.

This is the ‘hot off the press’ answer from tiwane’s new Help articles. January 2024

hmmmm… if they have changed the requirements for inclusion in the model (to >= 100 photos across >=60 observations, with <=5 photos from any observation), i don’t see that reflected in the taxon information yet. maybe they’ll update that later.

as far as i can tell, currently, the only way regular folks can get photo count at a taxon level in a somewhat reasonable way is to get information at an observation level and then aggregate up to the taxon level. you probably wouldn’t want to do this for many taxa with many observations, but you could do it for some taxa with relatively few observations.

so i would not modify my observations_species_count page to handle that, but i could provide a script to get this data, if folks are really interested in getting that kind of info.
