To clarify, what observation, that was previously unidentified or misidentified, went the longest between the submitted date and your identification to species?
I was just looking through old buckwheat observations and found one of kueda’s from 2010.
The good news is that it looks like that was the last “Needs ID” buckwheat from 2010 and 2011 was all caught up already. Don’t despair if your observation hasn’t been identified within a few weeks, it might just take a while for the right person to find it!
Look at that low observation number! To be fair, several other people also IDed it as Geranium, but I added my ID and marked it as Not Wild, because I recognize it as a garden hybrid (can I remember the variety name right now? No).
My link uses date uploaded rather than date observed. iNat was born in 2008 so anything dated before that is for sure a backdated upload. The original poster did say “went the longest between the submitted date and your identification.”
