What do I do if the observation has multiple photos depicting different species?

Modified on Thu, 01 Feb 2024 at 11:08 AM

If you see an observation that has two or more photos depicting different organisms in each, it's best to identify to the level that fits all photos and make a comment politely asking the user to separate the photos into different observations. 

For example, if the first photo is a flower and the second is a bug (without the flower), identify it as "Life" and leave a comment like, "Please separate these photos into different observations so each organism can be identified individually." If you revisit the observation after a few days and the observer hasn't separated the photos, mark the observation as "Based on the evidence, can the Community ID still be confirmed or improved? No, it's as good as it can be" in the Data Quality Assessment section.
