A quick scan of the 'Other organisms' category of observations shows that a very hig proportion have no 'likely ID' assigned. This despite the fact that they have been identified and various people have agreed. For example there is an observation of a Peacock butterfly with a large number of agreements, many by regular contributors to the site who I know have a high level of expertese with invertebrates. None of them however have any reputation in 'other organisms' so their agreements count for nothing in confirming the id even though it is clear to all that it is indeed a peacock!
The other problem is that observations languishing in the 'other organisms' category will be less likely to get checked by people with knowledge of particular groups so again the likelihod of getting a confirmed ID.
For virtually all of the observations in this category it is obvious which category they should be in and so I suggest it would be useful if the ISpot staff could periodically reassign them to the correct category. This would result in an awful lot of unconfirmed IDs being confirmed.
