Top Identifiers of September 2020 observations

As the number of flies on iNaturalist continues to grow, many users have stepped up to help identify more and more observations. I'd like to celebrate some of these accomplishments, focusing on recent activity. Some of these contributors have been active for years, while others have only recently begun to have a massive impact. We're all grateful for your generosity.

I think it might be interesting to keep trying this over the next few months to encourage identifiers and see if there are any interesting patterns. Colder winter weather should bring some changes.

Thanks for the post! I should say that I'm only on the list because there are so many USA Asilidae posted to iNat. Regarding that taxon, I'd also say that @tristanmcknight, @quaedfliegh, and @d2b deserve a lot of recognition as well.

I figured as much @myelaphus , thanks for passing along the appreciation! I would have liked to include more observation groupings here but was wary of making the whole thing just too long.

There are countless others whose cumulative identifications undoubtedly surpass those listed above.

So I'm guessing the tallied IDs I made included those outside the state, too?

If you are listed as the top identifier in a state that means that of the September-uploaded observations from that state, you made the most identifications.
