Illinois Botanists Big Year Update 6/24/2018

Below are links to what we as a group have found in 2018 so far compared to what has been documented on iNaturalist before 2018. The lists in the links below will update automatically as people continue adding observations throughout the year, but I thought it would be interesting to do some quick run-downs now that we're over halfway through 2018 (how the?!). iNaturalist's compare tool limits us to check 500 taxa at a time, so these are broken into several chunks.

Current Illinois Botanists Big Year Stats: (help identify)
15,642 observations
1,037 species
957 observers
471 identifiers

Non-flowering plants
Someone needs to take the Sagawau Canyon tour. ;) We also need to step up our moss game, check out a comparison to what MN, WI, and MI have found so far this year. Great job so far to @sedge, @vvoelker, @skrentnyjeff, and @ewarden on documenting and/or helping ID several new mosses for iNat in Illinois.

Purple-stem cliffbrake, Pellaea atropurpurea by @sanguinaria33

Monocots excluding Poales
Whoops, looks like I forgot to take a photo of Pogonia while at a boggy spot recently...

Poales (grasses, sedges, rushes, & friends)
Most of these are just coming into fruit now. These will also always be a bit harder to get IDed to research grade because so many photos, and good ones, are often needed for IDers to work their way through a dichotomous key. Several additions to Illinois on iNat so far include Carex crawei, C. canescens, C. pedunculata, C. siccata.

Plants in Asterales (sunflower family and friends)
Tons of these are mid summer to fall flowerers, so makes sense.

Plants in Fabales (pea family and friends)
One new addition is Gleditsia aquatica; @psweet and @missgreen observed the same individual on different days!

Plants in Lamiales (mint family and friends)
Apparently possibly the first documentation of a species in North America was found this year in someone's front yard - Veronica montana, wood speedwell..but perhaps it was planted? Hopefully @hollykatz can get back to @albach and @alisonnorthup with more information. :)

Plants in Rosales (rose family and friends)
No one has seen ditch weed (Cannabis sativa) yet? :)

Plants in Brassicales (mustard family and friends)
Addition of a couple Rorippas by @jrebman and @sedge.

Plants in Ranunculales (buttercup family and friends) 

Bird-in-a-bush, Corydalis solida, not a bird or a bush, by @aseeger

Plants in Caryophyllales (pink family and friends) 

All other (eu)dicots except the groups above
Quite a few new documentations, check em out.

I've got some Pogonias from Volo -- I'll post them when I get to them.
