I am a professional ecologist specializing in invasive species. One of the organizations I am involved in is the National Capital Region PRISM (Partnership for Invasive Species Management) and our project called Invader Detectives. That project involves reviewing many records of species and many of those records are in iNat. If I comment on your non-native species record I am probably trying to find out more to know if it is something of potential concern. If it is non-native and uncommon then it is a potential early detection target.
