If you edit the observation

If you edit the observation to transfer it from the 'other organisms' category to 'invertebrates' iSpot will label your ID as the 'likely id'. 'Other organisms' is a catch-all category for observations where you really don't know which of the other categories to put it into. By definition no-one can have any reputation or expertise for this category so iSpot cannot apply any weigting to IDs attributed to anything listed in 'Other organisms'.
