I'm a botanist with most of my experience in Pennsylvania, but currently living in Hawai'i while I work towards my PhD in Botany. I have general knowledge of most plant diversity and a specific interest in grasses, and sedges. Feel free to tag me to ask for any sort of ID. Also, if I disagreed with you on an ID, just tag me and ask why

I'm slowly trying to learn all the plants which exist in Hawai'i but the diversity here is incredible. I'm starting with the ferns as there are only about 200 species in the state (compared to ~1000 native flowering plants and ~1600 introduced flowering plant species)

Useful links:
Things which have conflicts in their ID's

Things which have NEVER been ID'd (solves the annoying problem of bacteria and viruses showing up as "unknown")
Finds observations ID'd by me have put a certain species even if it's not the community taxon
