Should this observation be marked "EN" for Endangered ? I can't find out how to do this.

the taxon: http://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/43490-Trachypithecus-phayrei is marked as endangered, so the observation knows its endangered since its ID'd to this taxon. First member of this taxon observed, nice job!

You can also see that this taxon is endangered on the Assam Species Guide and that its the first of 9 primates thought to occur in the Province confirmed with a research-grade observation:

I didn't realize there were so many primates in Northern India. Have you seen any of the other species? I notice you are using Flickr, you can import multiple observations from Flickr at once using http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/import

Yes, I have also photographed the Rhesus Macaque which is very common. The other two are rare and seldom seen. Thanks for the Flickr tip - will use it.
