50 Hours To Go: We desperately need identifiers!!

We need help with IDs please: our identifications are progressing at a snails pace.

Summaries - just before Midnight on Friday night:

.* Birds - 4,957 observations of 191 species. RG: 4,504 (91%)
.* Herps - 955 observations of 48 species. RG: 870 (91%)
.* Mammals - 744 observations of 49 species. RG: 466 (62%)
.* Fish -391 observations of 67 species. RG: 231 (59%)

.* Molluscs - 1,797 observations of 210 species. RG: 862 (48%)
.* Insects - 3,238 observations of 389 species. RG: 1,057 (33%)
.* Arachnids - 872 observations of 97 species. RG: 260 (30%)

.* Monocots - 5,873 observations of 484 species. RG: 1,010 (39%)
.* Dicots - 24,618 observations of 1,962 species. RG: 7,954 (29%)

.* Fungi - 746 observations of 120 species. RG: 51 (7%)

.* Marine - 5249 observations of 700 species. RG: 2,818 (54%)

Of our 63,210 observations - our observations by rank:
.* 12,980 observations (21%) dont have any Identifications at all
.* 3,238 observations (5%) have an ID above family level
.* 3,038 observations (5%) have an ID at Family or Tribe level
.* 9,269 observations (15%) have an ID at Genus level
.* 34,557 observations (55%) have an ID to species level

These are roughly as by state of identificaiton:
.* 12,980 observations (21%) dont have any Identifications at all
.* 6,791 observations (11%) are casual grade (planted/captive or missing information)
.* 24,308 observations (38%) have an ID but need it refined or confirmed.
.* 19,212 observations (30%) are Research Grade.

So we still have a gargantuan task over the next 50 hours.

To put this in perspective. With 34,500 observations identified to species level - this is more observations identified than observed by any, except the top three other, cities.

Neck and neck with Hong Kong for second place now. Our ... 42 versus their ... 45! species

@liezelg - what do you mean?
Please see here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2022-city-of-cape-town/journal/65505-please-help-with-identifications
Does this help you? It sounds that you might be most useful for "Second Pass" and "Specialists".
