Not sure if I am just being thick (it has happened before) - but when you create a new project, it it possible to add different ‘sub-categories’ to enable you to home in on what you want to look at? For example, I have created a new project: ‘Symphytums’ - but would quite like to search for several species within that project, so rather than getting all Symphytums (incidentally some are missing - more on that later) I could whittle it down to a sub-set - say S asperum, S x uplandicum, S officinale. Is there a way to do this?
Missing: I know that i have photographed Norfolk comfrey in my garden and put it on iSpot as a reference for others - but it hasn’t come up in my project…anyone know what this might be?
You can add multiple entries in and “OR” Boolean Logic for the following filters:
Group, User, Tag, Habitat
Unfortunately that is not possible for other fields (date and Likely ID and Scientific Name.
We have asked for it, but I suspect that it wont happen soon.
So you are confined to using a taxon. Thus you could use Symphyta, and if the dictionary had subgenera (SANBI and UKSI or superspecies (which only the SANBI dictionary has) , you could use those, but otherwise you are stuck.
I see the UKSI dictionary has “agg” species, but they appear to be regarded as separate species, which is a ridiculous concept as agg. species is surely an informal “taxon” between genus and species
you hid the locality, so the centroid of the 10X10km random square (what a hideous concept) is now at sea, so that your polygon for the Norfolk Flora project does not include this “hidden” locality as it is at sea.
(the third is at IofW so outside of Norfolk).
None of them occur in the TG40 polygon.
Does that help answer your question? I am not sure …
Try unhiding Symphytum officinale and see if that solves your problem.
Try extending your polygon in the Norfolk Project to 5km out to sea (I would not recommend this: a horrible bug makes the screen jump out each time you move a node, so that you have to reset the size: very annoying and impossible to work with).
Either should solve your problem.
Thanks @Cassine - at least that solves the mystery! This is its only name. I did just check to see if the hybrid was known to iSpot (eg by either parent) - but no. It has been officially recognised for a good few years now here in the UK, but I see PlantList http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/search?q=symphytum is treating it as ‘Unresolved’
Lots of alarm bells should have gone off!!! (As an old iSpotter: you should know this?)
OK: iSpot ID 101!
Open the observation. Look at the ID!
What is wrong with it?
1: it is not in blue
2: it does not have links to EoL, Wiki and SNBN
What does that mean?
It means that it is not connected to the dictionary. Which means that any filters using Scientific names will not work. The data is simply “lost” BUT: only if you use a Scientific name filter.
SO: Lesson: only choose names that are in the dictionary. And add any omissions to the dictionary errors forum. And complain when the dictionary is not updated regularly.
It should be working fine for Group = “Plants”
Yes: it is there:
see: column 1 row 5:
hint: we cannot change the order (yes it is on our wish list) - so it is from last posted to earliest posted: so find the date …
