I photograph and post every species I find (no matter which kingdom it is in) since Jan/2022. This way of iNatting is extremely fun. Have a try...

Hi! I am a high school student living in Auckland, New Zealand, working towards becoming an invertebrate zoologist.
I was born in Japan in 2007 and lived there until 2019 when I moved to NZ.
My main expertise on iNaturalist is worldwide molluscs, especially Pacific gastropods, however I have been vastly expanding my areas of interest.
As a Japanese, I have started planning for iNatJapan. It is a long way, but I will make it reality in the future!

My interest in molluscs started when I was 7 and until now I have identified several thousand mollusc species.
Besides Molluscs, I am extremely interested in any other marine/terrestrial/freshwater invertebrates, mosses, liverworts, lichens, fungi, all algae, and any other weird (praise) wild organisms.

I recognise myself as a heavy iNaturalist addict.
What I do on iNat: Posting observations of every species I see since Jan/2022, identifying worldwide molluscs and any local observations, wide-scale IDs, site curation (adding&updating scientific names, updating taxonomy, etc), etc.

I love communicating with any fellow naturalists, so please feel free to mention me in comments or to send me direct message or email saryumae(a) for anything.
Usually online everyday.

I am always happy to collect, preserve and send specimens to researchers for scientific purposes.

Observations with hard-worked backgrounds

My mollusc observations, including in situ photography as well as specimen photos

All of the photos I post on Inaturalist were taken and edited only by me unless others' names are mentioned.
Feel free to use my CC-BY photographs for any purposes, however a clear citation of the credit (needs to be Saryu Mae, not as @ glycymeris) is always required.
I would be happier if you could notify me in comments, messages or by email if you plan to use any of my photos. Possibly I can provide a better one!

・Reasons of why I add IDs to old observations, even if they are already identified and being "research grade"
In iNaturalist community, there are not many identifiers specialised to Molluscs, allowing many observations to be Research grade with inaccurate ID.
 Because these mistakes are so common and many "research grade" observations are not reliable at all even with multiple agreeing IDs, I have been trying to go through all the past mollusc observations.
In this process, I add my own identifications to all the observations (not randomly clicking Agree button!), and sometimes I end up with confirming all the observations or disagreeing with all the IDs.
 I aim to add as many accurate mollusc identifications as I can, so I can be notified when there are important activities.

 This is an article about deep water fauna and environment of a formation formed in middle Pleistocene(Chibanian).
I collected, prepared and identified all the figured specimens.

It is my wish that all of the content I have contributed to iNaturalist (Observations, Identifications, comments, medias, etc) remain on the site in the event of my death, which hopefully will not be soon :)

iNaturalistでは多数派ではない日本語ユーザーが英語を使わずとも同定や情報交換などをし合える場所として、アイナチュラリスト日本語コミュニティ(url) を作りました。日本語を理解できるユーザーの方は参加をお願い申し上げます。

最近、twitterなどでInaturalistを宣伝(?)している張本人です。Inaturalistの使い方、サイトが改善すべきところ、設定の方法や使い方など、なんでも相談に乗りますので、お気軽にメッセージ、またはコメントで@glycymeris とメンションしていただければ、できるだけお手伝いします。
