Great Southern Bioblitz observation stage is over, please help with identification (beginners welcome)

Now the data collection phase for GSB22 is over and most observations have been loaded (any outstanding ones please load asap), now it is time to start with the identifications.

The immediate task is to get the vaguely identified observations to levels where specialists can get to see them.

  • If you are a total beginner then putting observations to ants, bees, butterflies, daisies, peas and grasses will be very useful.
  • If you are more experienced, then skip the observations that you do not know and move the unknowns to family, genus and species.
    The most efficient way of doing this is to use the identification tool. How it works: https://vimeo.com/246153496

Task One: BASIC
These need basic identification (all regions).

Task Two: INTERMEDIATE
These need identification to family level or lower.
Help with basic Animals identifications

These two tasks are the most urgent, and need to be cleared soon so that the specialists can get started.

Task Three: SPECIALISTS
ID needed below family level
