Grew up next to Australian bush. Spent much of life overseas. Love nature, enjoy the challenges of nature photography, but unfortunately rarely get the chance these days. Impressed by this community and a big believer in open source and citizen science / education so will definitely stick around!

Note that there are apparently still a lot of plants not on iNat which do occur in Australia, in which case you should check ALA. Equisetidae are an example: https://bie.ala.org.au/species/https://id.biodiversity.org.au/node/apni/2887470 vs. https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/764793-Equisetidae
