Low-hanging fruit (and flowers) for identification

It's great to see the id progress on the Flowering Plants of Indonesia project - over 2800 observations at Research Grade now. That leaves about 4800 observations in the 'needs id' pot, including leafy photos that will often be harder to identify to species.

Sometimes - but far from always - when the photos for an observation include flowers, fruit or buds, this is marked up in the Annotations section.

That means its possible to query for observations that still need an initial id, or for the id to be confirmed, and which are more likely to have diagnostic features to help the identifier. There are about 130 of these at the time of writing.

This link will take you to these observations (hiding the ones that you personally have already reviewed)

Some other ways to help this to work better
- add the annotation when you see a flower or fruit photo on iNaturalist that hasn't been tagged
- mark up obviously planted individuals as 'not wild' in the Data Quality Assessment (see also previous news item https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/flowering-plants-of-indonesia/journal/26096-planted-in-indonesia)

Thank you, everyone!
