Everyone can see the coordinates unless the taxon is threatened.
Public coordinates shown as a random point within 10KM of the true coordinates. True coordinates are only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation.
Coordinates completely hidden from public maps, true coordinates only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation. Observations with private coordinates will still be used to verify place check lists.
This plant made up much of the ground cover at this location. It had short but very sharp spikes on its stems and the leaf was slightly prickly underneath. The plant had white flowers but I didn't see any fruit.
