Can you ID Fen Orchid (Liparis loeselii)? Know your Fraxinus spp?

As of Wednesday night, there have been a whopping 10,900 identifications for City Nature Challenge 2019: Chicago Wilderness Regions! Thanks to all of you extraordinary identifiers out there @evan8 @eriko @mcaple @prairiehobbit who have each made over 400 species IDs since Friday.

THREATENED: There are currently 61 T/E observations that are awaiting identification. Can you ID any of these imperiled species?

Plants make up 61% of our observations. The categories below are non-plant categories that can bump up our species count if we can get confirmations.

FUNGI: There are 234 fungi observations awaiting identification. If 'shrooms are your jam, can you help us out of one?
