For example, I’m having this discussion about two different observations of the same fungus that completed its life cycle within a day:
I argued that the timestamps are useful for tracking how organisms change over time, but petragloyn’s suggestion that I should combine both into one and add the timestamp in the comment is also valid.
This also applies to my caterpillar rearing efforts. I’d argue that knowing how long each individual/species spends in each phase is useful, but what’s the best way to organize this on iNat?
After all, if say, my caterpillars pupate in the wild, it’d be impossible for me to know if I had photographed the same specimen once or twice and will always split them into two or more observations.
Maybe we need a feature that links different observations of the same individual together? Or adding timestamps for individual photos?
